Safe&Sound: Hurricane Preparedness Resource Guide for VirginiaSat Sep 09, 2017
We know how scary the weather has been recently. From wild fires to excessive rainfall and flooding, the news and forecasts can be a source of worry and uncertainty for folks. Hurricane season for the Atlantic Basin is June 1 through the end of November, with peak season in October, and brings its own daunting headlines. NNINS has lived through Atlantic hurricane seasons since 1896. We're Virginians protecting Virginians. So we know a little bit about getting ready for a big storm. And we know there's a ton of information out there- some good, some not so good. So how do you know which resources are the best for your family?
That's why we created our interactive Hurricane Preparedness Guide. We're providing reliable resources from the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM), the Insurance Information Institute (III.org), and the American Red Cross. We want you and your family to prepare well, with the best information, for any future hurricane.
We also have good information that can answer questions you may have about insurance for flood damage, and preparing your roof, gutters, and trees for hurricane season. We know the risks for Virginia homes and property and encourage all of our members to have a home inventory to make any claims process run smoother. We also recommend calling or sitting down with your independent agent to review and understand your coverage regularly.
