Hurricane Prep Tip 3: Protect Important Documents
To protect those irreplaceable original documents (birth certificates, passports, insurance cards & policies) place them in a secure, watertight container.
Hurricane Prep Tip 4: Evacuation Route
Get your evacuation route planned, review the supplies you will need in case of an emergency, and make sure that all gas-powered vehicles are filled up before a storm hits. If your vehicle is electrically powered, take precautions to keep it as charged as possible and/or have alternative means of conventionally-fueled transportation.

Don’t get caught unaware! Stay informed of storm conditions via news/radio. Watch your surroundings and remain vigilant of potential hazards like falling trees and power lines.

BONUS TIP: Check your homeowner’s insurance policy coverage
If it’s been more than one year since you last reviewed your homeowner’s insurance policy, taking the time to review it now may prevent a financial disaster in the event of a natural disaster.
As homebuilding costs have increased, so have home values. If your policy was written before the market shift, you may find yourself underinsured. By taking the extra time to review your coverage, ensure the proper policy riders have been added, and you have an accurate inventory of your home’s value and contents, you will be protecting your household’s financial safety.
