People who live along the coastline have taken notice of NOAA’s predictions as they are at greater risk of experiencing the damaging effects of a hurricane than those living further inland. Many of these people have already made plans to minimize damage to their properties in the event of a hurricane. Others are just beginning the process.
One of the best ways to prepare for a hurricane is to ensure that all the roof connections are up to code. Adding hurricane panels to protect windows and door openings can also help prevent damage. High winds, heavy rains and flooding create much of the destruction to property. For those living very close to the coast, storm surge is also a major concern.
Unfortunately, even property owners who make all the recommended improvements to their property can still experience devastating destruction in the event of a direct hit by a major storm. These properties may be left with slight to severe damage due to strong winds, heavy rain and flooding.
“Fortunately there are building inspection, environmental consulting, remediation and reconstruction professionals who can help property owners prepare and quickly rebuild in the event of hurricane damage,” reported Brian Mcfarland, Vice President of Legends Environmental Insurance Services, a leading provider of insurance coverage to the indoor air quality (IAQ), environmental and restoration industries. “Many of these properties can be rebuilt, but there are environmental hazards people need to be aware of as they rebuild.”
Legends has sponsored a public outreach video about indoor environmental hazards following a hurricane that can be seen at:
