Hurricane Season Is Upon Us

by Audrey and Frank Serio, CRS

 

June marks the start of summer – a time when Delawareans and folks from across the country flock to our state's pristine 5-star beaches of Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island and outdoor spaces surrounding our resorts. As we prepare to enjoy all that summer has to offer, it's important to remember that June also marks the start of the Atlantic hurricane season.

Those of us in the resort have witnessed first-hand how destructive severe tropical weather can be. In 2012, Superstorm Sandy, forced evacuations across the state and inflicted tens of billions of dollars in damage to our neighboring communities along the East Coast. Superstorm Sandy reminded us of the threats associated with living in the lowest-lying coastal state – and why it’s so important that we prepare for hurricane-related hazards.

In Delaware, even communities miles inland from the coast can experience the threat of powerful winds, rainfall and flooding when hurricanes or severe storms hit. Here are some tips to remember during hurricane season:

Prepare. Learn more about the potential hurricane-related hazards in your area from wind, rainfall and flooding. Assess potential flooding risks nearby and learn accessible evacuation routes for your family and community.

Plan. Talk to your family and strategize methods of communication, transportation, and shelter for potential disasters. Maintain a supply kit that includes water, food, flashlights, batteries, and other materials that you and your family will need if you lose electricity.

Stay Informed. Familiarize yourself with the risks that coincide with tropical storm systems and learn terms to help identify hazardous situations; like storm surge, wind-scale or short-term watches and warnings. Stay current on weather reports and sign up for Wireless Emergency Alerts on your mobile device.

I hope that you, your family and your friends stay safe and enjoy the start of summer. For more information on hurricane preparedness, check out www.ready.gov/hurricanes.

Does Your Insurance Cover Your Assets?

by Audrey and Frank Serio, CRS

Does Your Insurance Cover Your Assets?

With recent events many homeowners who thought their insurance protected them are finding that it did not cover them sufficiently. As of March 16, 2015 FEMA has enacted new Base Flood Plan elevations.  Homeowners, who have flood insurance, should check with their carriers to see if their policies are going to increase and what they should do to prevent and cover themselves in the event of a hurricane or flood.

Here are a few tips on making sure you are protected;

1. Research: Ask your insurance agent “What doesn’t my policy cover?” This way you will know what else is necessary to purchase for your protection.

2. Rebuilding: Find out the average square foot building cost in your area.

3. Replacement: Get insured for the replacement value of your personal items and document them.

4. Relocation: Have coverage to get housing if you are displaced for a period of time.

These few tips could save you a lot of heartache and money in the event of a natural disaster.

Please share this with your friends.  You could be doing them a big favor!

As always, give us a call if we can be of assistance here in the Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island and surrounding Delaware resort areas.
