Every summer, Floridians expect afternoon showers nearly everyday, but they’re often harmless. Then there are the days that the skies open up and the rain pours out until our streets better navigated by boats than cars. We saw this recently when Tropical Storm Debby ravaged Pass-A-Grille and other local beaches.
So many Pinellas County businesses and homes were flooded. Storms like Debby remind us how important Flood Insurance is. Before your home of business is damaged by a flood, make sure you purchase Florida flood insurance and know what to when it’s time to make a claim.
Often times homeowners think they need to leave their homes in the condition the flood left behind until an insurance adjuster can inspect the damage. This is not true. Here’s a short video by Patrons Insurance Agency owner, Tim McGuire, explaining what to do before you make a flood insurance claim.
Now that you know what to do after the flood and before the insurance adjuster arrives, here’s how you can save your weather damaged documents and photos.
