Another Hurricane Season Looms Large
Posted by Benjamin Dona on Sunday, May 30th, 2010 at 2:54pm.
The 2010 hurricane season is set to begin this week and it is important for Southwest Florida residents to pay attention and be prepared. With three years of relatively quiet storm seasons, it's easy to become complacent. However, ignoring the possibility of a major storm coming our way can be a major mistake. All you have to do is remember two very important points:
- All it takes is one big storm to hit the area to cause major destruction.
- Not taking the necessary steps to be prepared hurts everyone in terms of the storms aftermath and rising insurance costs.
So, every Florida homeowner should prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Plan early and be prepared for any and all contingencies. Don't let apathy make you an even worse victim of the power that Mother Nature can unleash.
For more information on what you can do to be ready for this hurricane season, please visit our hurricane preparedness information resource page and be sure to review your flood insurance and homeowner insurance policies. Being storm smart is the best thing you can do for your home and your family.
