Hurricane Season and Insurance Companies

If you live anywhere in the southeast or these days along the east coast, then you know that the 2009 hurricane season is underway. For the past three years, hurricanes have caused over one billion dollars in damage each season. Tragically, every year residents mistakenly assume they are safe from this threat. First and foremost, people should never assume they are immune from hurricanes and should always take precautions. And many of these precautions need to be taken long before a storm even approaches. One of these precautions includes maintaining a good insurance policy and understanding what it covers. In recent years, insurance companies have modified, rewritten or canceled hurricane policies with such frequency that it can be almost impossible to keep up with what you actually have.
