Some really rough storms blew through Massachusetts last night resulting in tornado warnings in some areas. It just proves that no matter where you live that mother nature can deliver some extreme weather. Summer throughout the United States can generate a wide variety of severe weather conditions including hailstorms, thunderstorms, high winds, flooding, lightning and even tornadoes. Unfortunately, extreme weather has already devastated many parts of the country this summer, including the devastating floods in Louisiana.
There are steps you can take to help mitigate damage, and for the situations where you can't control having a loss, be sure that you've got proper insurance to protect all your personal and/ or business needs. To help you mitigate summer storm risks, the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) has a variety of resources that can prove to be invaluable when it comes to preventing significant property losses caused by summer storm systems. We encourage you to take a few moments to take a look and then take action on any times that you determine require further attention.
