The 2018 Hurricane Season Puts South Florida Homes at Risk
Hurricane season arrived sooner than expected this year when Subtropical Storm Alberto made landfall over Memorial Day Weekend.
This early start is not a good sign for the rest of the season. The South Florida Business Journal reported that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has predicted this season to produce 10 to 16 named storms, with five to nine of the storms becoming hurricanes.
This possible increase in the number of expected hurricanes poses the threat of storm surge damage for homeowners. Compared to a study done by CoreLogic last year, 3,906 more South Florida homes are at risk of damage this season.
The storm surge risk for homeowners is broken down into five levels: extreme, very high, high, moderate and low. Each homeowner is classified in a different level depending on the expected damage to their home and the cost it will be to recover it.
Now that hurricane season has officially begun, homeowners should be aware of the possible damages that could be caused. Their community could experience extreme flooding, and if not handled immediately, the flood could lead to sewage backup or the growth of mold.
So if your property was damaged during a tropical storm, hurricane or other severe weather event or if you have roof damage, roof leak, pipe burst, plumbing backup, water damage, wind damage, mold, smoke-fire damage, lightning, hail, flood, theft, vandalism, or construction defects DON’T WORRY, the experienced and aggressive adjusters and attorneys from ILG are on your side.
