The Atlantic Hurricane season is officially here. With everything going on in the world right now, hurricanes are the last thing we want to deal with. However, as a South Florida homeowner, preparation is absolutely essential when it comes to protecting your home and family.
The hurricane season started on June 1 and will last until November 30, meaning that all residents of South Florida need to educate and prepare themselves for potential storms. In 2019, there were 18 named storms and 20 tropical cyclones in total. Six of the storms turned into hurricanes, including the powerful Hurricane Dorian, which caused over 160,000 residents in Florida to lose power.
South Florida mostly avoided major damage and casualties, but as we have seen over the years, the Sunshine State is susceptible to major storm damage, which is why it is so important to be prepared.
Whether you live in Dade, Broward or Palm Beach County or somewhere else in the state of Florida, LMR Public Adjusters has created a checklist of tips for you to follow during this hurricane season. We are season public adjusters based in Hollywood (but handle cases throughout the state) with experience handling major home damage from storms.
These are just some tips in dealing with the hurricane season. The important thing is always be safe and secure in times like these.
