You should establish a preventative plan of action with a meeting place in a hurricane situation. It goes without saying that meteorologists have their work cut out for them during hurricane season. Mother Nature is unpredictable, to begin with, and extreme weather conditions only complicate things further.

eye-of-hurricaneWe see it all the time with hurricanes: they abruptly change trajectories, or they suddenly strengthen when they were projected to weaken.

This is why it’s so important that you and your loved ones should be prepared for anything during an active hurricane season.

  1. In case phone lines are down, pre-established meeting places are crucial. Investigate hurricane shelters around your home and map out the directions for your family.
  2. A secondary out-of-town meeting place is always a good backup plan. If, for any reason, the primary meeting place is not accessible (perhaps it is filled to capacity), then you can quickly react and proceed accordingly. Make sure everyone in your family is aware of the secondary location, so in the event you do not arrive together, you can at least rest assured that the others should arrive shortly.
  3. Because hurricanes can cause transportation and communication problems, everyone in your family should memorize an out-of-town/state contact as well. If anyone should become stranded and without a phone, they can try to borrow a phone and call the out-of-town contact. This person would then be in charge of relaying any messages between the stranded person and the rest of the party.

Save Emergency Contacts

Lastly, here is a bonus tip! Be sure to save emergency phone numbers in your phone’s address book as “ICE,” which stands for “in case of emergency.” Since the mid-2000s, this has been the standard for enabling first responders, such as paramedics, firefighters, and police officers, to know which number to dial on a victim’s mobile phone in case of an emergency. But above all, always keep a list of all your MP’s handy (meeting places).

Florida’s Best Public Adjusters ARE the best. Our adjuster came to the house a few times to scope out the damage from a water leak and he spent quite a bit of time measuring the affected areas. The resulting claim amount was amazing. If we had handled the insurance company ourselves we would have come up way short. We highly recommend and trust Florida’s Best. Thanks Julian!

Stephen got my denial reversed….had all to do with his reputation, and not the “luck of the Irish” on this St. Patrick's day! Him and his team are very professional, responsive and caring during the entire ordeal. If they are not on your team, you have chosen poorly.
