The better prepared for hurricane season in Florida that you are, the higher the likelihood of ensuring the safety of both your family and your property. You don’t want to be scrambling around looking for resources once the winds pick up and the rain starts pouring. 

Below are some great places to find resources to help you prepare for an upcoming storm, along with some helpful information about filing an insurance claim and what you can do should your insurance provider decide to deny your claim in bad faith. 

Where Can I Find Florida Hurricane Resources?

There are a few places you can check for more resources to prepare you for the upcoming hurricane season. These include:

Your “Zone”

Your “zone” refers to the region of Florida where you live in relation to evacuation necessity. Essentially, if you live in an area that is prone to flooding and an increased risk of danger caused by hurricanes, you are in an evacuation zone.

Check to see if you are in an evacuation zone, as you’ll be more likely to be evacuated in case of a storm. With that said, you still need to stay up-to-date on evacuation orders for your specific area.

Filing a Claim After Storm Damage

If a hurricane or other storm should hit and damage your property, you’ll need to file a claim with your insurance company. When you do, make sure you are as thorough as possible. Take photos and videos for evidence of the damage and make a detailed list of all of the damage that has occurred. 

After you file, make sure you save any correspondence between the insurance company and you. This includes physical mail and emails. You may even want to record your conversations.
