For many people, Southwest Florida is one of the most desirable places to live. Between the beaches, golf courses, and sunshine all year long, it's not surprising that Southwest Florida is an ideal location for people to call home. However, the threat of a hurricane is very real for full-time and part-time residents alike. From June through November, hurricane season brings the very real possibility of a hurricane or tropical storm hitting the area.
If you've lived in Southwest Florida during hurricane season, you know how important it is to protect your home during a storm.
For most of the year, Floridians can enjoy beautiful weather, sunshine, and beaches. While we still get to enjoy all of these things from June through November, we also find ourselves wary of hurricanes. As Floridians, we know how powerful and destructive hurricanes can be.
Hurricanes can be devastating, which is why it’s critical to be prepared, including having a hurricane insurance policy that fits your needs.
Whether you're new to Florida or a lifelong resident, hurricane preparedness is important every year. Recognizing this, the National Weather Service designates one week per year to educate people in hurricane-prone areas about the dangers of hurricanes and how to prepare for them.
