May 15-21 is Hurricane Preparedness Week for Louisiana residents. I’m sure you’ve seen the news stories and the sales on items that will help you get your game plan together in case of a hurricane. Flashlight, batteries, bottled water, evacuation route.

But, what about your home? Is your home prepared in the event of a hurricane?

Many of us think we are covered. Our homeowners insurance will take care of everything. And, if a tree is uprooted and falls on your roof, you should be covered. But, when it comes to rising water, water surges and floods, you might find yourself not as prepared as you thought your were.

Homeowners insurance does not cover flood damage caused by a hurricane. This is why it is so important for everyone living in Louisiana to evaluate your flood needs, even if you don’t live in a designated flood zone.

Don’t find out the hard way. Discover the 3 steps to protect against hurricane damage and get flood insurance!

Set aside a day this week to review your current policy. Talk to an insurance expert at Henry Insurance Service and we will help you determine if you are sufficiently covered or if you need additional protection.
