What to Expect Before, During & After a Hurricane

As hurricane season continues, you may have let your guard down a bit, but we always advise to remain vigilant during this dangerous time of the year. Now, especially, with record high temperatures, the waters are warm in the Atlantic and the Gulf, which is a recipe for a storm to form at any moment. If you’re new to the area or you haven’t yet experienced a hurricane, it’s important to be as prepared as possible, and part of this preparation is knowing what to expect. Fortunately, we tend to receive ample notice when the threat of a storm is imminent, but the time for preparation flies by in a blink of an eye. When it comes to what to expect before, during and after a hurricane, let us bring you up to speed, so you can stay safe.
