It’s that time of year again. The National Weather service is predicting more and stronger named storms this year. We are concerned with the storm or storms that hit us. Remember, it is possible to get hit with more than one storm in any given year. Florida is proof of that with four storms hitting in one year.

One of the items that are always needed is a g...ood home inventory. With digital camera’s it’s possible to take hundred’s of pictures that will assist you when you have to complete insurance company claim forms. The pictures can be stored on a thumb drive and stored away from your home.

Another item that requires attention is the ordering of medication. Some people use the postal service when ordering ninety days of medication at a time. After a major storm it may be ten days or more before services as we know them can be restored.

If you have the resources available my advice is to leave when a name storm is approaching. Leaving a day early allows you to avoid the congestion that we have had with past storms. Remember, tornadoes are possible as the hurricane passes. Most of us do not have tornado shelters. Spending a couple of nights in a motel or with family and being able to enjoy comforts that require electricity, water, sewer, restaurants, etc. is much preferred then staying at home waiting for power to be restored.

The cost per square foot to rebuild a home in this area is starting to increase. It is common for our office to see costs between $100 and $200 per square foot to rebuild a home in our area. After a storm you will see price increases on both labor and materials. This is a good time to make sure any structures that have been built on your property get added to your home owners insurance.
