You know the drill! Time to be ready for possible catastrophic weather ... what YOU need to do and know NOW!
1) Flood damage from hurricanes is NOT covered by your home or fire property
insurance policy on your residence or business. Even if you are not in a
designated flood zone, flood insurance is recommended. You MUST have a separate
FLOOD insurance policy through the National Flood Insurance Program. There is a
30-DAY WAITING PERIOD before a new flood policy will become effective. Call or
come by our office TODAY 228-385-1177 to get your flood policy!
2) Have a summary of your insurance policies with you if you must evacuate.
NOW IS THE TIME to review your coverage levels on each policy (home, wind,
flood, auto, etc) and your mortgage holders to ensure that your coverage is
adequate and that all information is correct on your policy. Be sure you know
your carrier's name and policy number for all of your policies. You may contact
us (email: email@example.com , phone: 228-466-4498, fax:
888-415-8922) if you need policy information or if you need any changes to your
3) Home and business preparations:
* Remove yard debris, like dead tree limbs, that could become flying
* Have a safe place to park your cars or store your boat
* Back-up computer records and store them at least 50 miles off-site
* Gather important papers, including inventory lists and insurance
information, to take with you if you must evacuate (keep valuable papers in a
* Take pictures or video your possessions to assist in documenting
4) If you evacuate, email us firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact
information (address and phone number), so that we will be able to assist you
more quickly if you have a claim.
5) If a hurricane strikes our area, MAKE PERSONAL SAFETY YOUR FIRST
PRIORITY! (Beware of dangling electrical wires, broken gas lines, etc.)
6) If you have hurricane damage, report it to us as soon as possible - call
228-466-4498 or email: email@example.com or fax 888-415-8922 or
online through our 24/7 CLIENT SERVICE PORTAL. You may also report your claim
directly to the appropriate carrier (phone numbers will be available at
www.southgroupgulfcoast.com). Recognize that communication lines may be
impaired, but keep trying!
7) Following a storm, make temporary repairs and take pictures of all
damage. Don't throw away any damaged valuables until an adjuster has personally
seen and documented them.
8) Thoroughly document your damage by listing damaged/destroyed items along
with estimated values to provide to your adjuster. Take pictures if possible.
9) Your adjuster will discuss with you which damages are covered under your
policy. Make a note of your adjuster's name and number, as well as the claim
number you will be assigned. You will be assigned a different adjuster for each
policy that you have. Keep in touch with your adjuster(s), at least weekly,
until your claim is settled.
10) Contact SouthGroup Insurance (email: firstname.lastname@example.org ,

God bless us all during this hurricane season.
