The Gulf Coast sees its fair share of hurricanes every few years, so it's important to make sure your policies include enough hurricane insurance, if you work and live in Alabama. You can find quotes on hurricane-proof insurance policies for your home, car, business and other important assets. The combination of strong winds and driving rain make hurricanes a potentially disastrous prospect. A powerful storm system can level buildings, blow down trees and cause widespread flooding. Make sure your insurance policies are ready for a hurricane long before it makes landfall.
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina swept across seven states, including AL, and caused more devastation than anyone could have predicted.
The U.S. lost $110 billion in damages related to Katrina. Many homeowners and business owners were unable to afford the cost of rebuilding, and had to move elsewhere. Good insurance coverage can mean the difference between replacing your home free and clear, and being buried under a mountain of new debt after a disaster.
Hurricane usually isn't usually sold as a stand-alone policy, but you can make sure your current and future insurance policies include enough of the right coverage to protect you in the event of a hurricane.
