Prepare Your Business for the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season

Posted by The ALS Group on Jun 3, 2020 2:07:09 PM

The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season is expected to run from June 1st to November 30th. Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University predicted that the East Coast of the United States is likely to see a major hurricane, ranking at a category 3, 4, or 5, during the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season. High category named storms bring on damages like, floods, wind damage, and power failure which may take several weeks to recover from. Though these predictions are not precise, we believe, that informed preparation is the best way to avoid costly claims, not unlike those caused by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

Over the years, the U.S. has seen an increase in earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards and more. The insurance industry now has created a stricter view of how they will cover these events. In particular, as we have seen with Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy, the insurance industry has developed a new terminology and deductible related, specifically, to “named storm/named windstorm.”
