Cover Your Assets – Hurricane Season in Florida – Be Prepared
Warren Cleveland, a property and casualty insurance advisor, and Owner of ReNu Insurance shared his over 20 years of experience in South Florida about preparing for a hurricane at Blatt Financial Group’s Monthly Client Education event. He talked about not just what happens in preparation for a storm and the day of the storm, but ongoing claims as a result of the storm. This brings into play the coverages in a typical Florida home insurance policy, how the insurance company responds, and hopefully makes your home insurance more “tangible”. Warren also discussed some of the “myths” of insurance carriers and hurricanes, such as when a company stops binding coverage or if a company goes into “bankruptcy” after a storm.
Warren would also like to share this article about the 25th Anniversary of Hurricane Andrew. It shows how short our memory really is. It’s been 10 plus years since a major hurricane showed up on Florida’s door step. With Irma headed our way, we can learn from what Andrew did to our great state.

Andrew was born twenty-five years ago. Nobody knew that barrel into Florida as a Category 5 hurricane. It was one of the most destructive and costly storms in our history.
Florida has largely been spared the last decade, with only one hurricane (Hermine) making land in the state since 2005. But forecasters are predicting a very active hurricane season this year.
