Hurricanes and other dangerous storms create devastating effects. They lead to catastrophic damage, whether you are on the coastline or several hundred miles inland. A strong hurricane can create winds exceeding 155 mph. In 2019, there were 18 named storms, many of which caused destruction and property damage.
In addition to the wind, flooding and hail that are caused by hurricanes, these storms can also spawn tornadoes. Some even lead to a storm surge that destroys properties along the way. No matter where you live, you are at risk for dangerous storms throughout the year, whether by hurricanes or tornadoes. That’s why you need to make sure your insurance policy covers any damage that might occur.
