Hurricane season is upon us

Hurricane season is upon us

As you may have heard through TV, print ads, radio, word of mouth or email; hurricane season has officially started.  And forecasters predict an active or extremely active season in 2013.  What interests me as a Florida Home Insurance Company  is the wide variety of reactions I hear when people discuss hurricane season.  They range from people who shrug it off as nothing more than some extra wind (I’m guilty of this as a personal homeowner sometimes) to those who open up a new Home Depot credit account to purchase everything from generators to storm shutters.  But at the end of the day everyone should have at least a basic list of items readily available in the event of a major hurricane.  Some of those items, suggested by, are as follows:

  • flashlights
  • first aid kit
  • cash in case of power outage
  • 1 gallon of water per person in your household per day for at least 3 days
  • canned or dried food
  • hand sanitizer
  • battery-powered radio

Stay Smart!  Please visit our or call Focus Insurance Group or your Florida Home Insurance Company for more information.

We hope each of you and your homes stay safe this hurricane season.
