Elder Insurance Services Talks Hurricane Preparedness

Elder Insurance Services representative Bruce Kestenbaum appeared on ABC Action News on June 3rd to discuss hurricane preparedness with Ashley Yore. It was explained that we think about tropical storm preparation in terms of bottled water and batteries, but this completely ignores the potential damage caused by inclement weather. For instance, Kestenbaum explained that homeowners insurance only covers damage caused by the windstorm but a hurricane causes wind damage and flood damage. He went on to state that flood insurance requires a thirty day waiting period, meaning it is vital to speak with your insurance agent today regarding attaining a flood insurance policy. Kestenbaum closed by suggesting that Tampa Bay area homeowners build a cloud-based photo inventory of their possession before every tropical storm season.
