Few people ever expect to get hit by a major natural disaster. But hurricanes, tornadoes, and flash foods cause severe damage across the globe at what seems to be record rates. By properly preparing, people are finding themselves more resilient to the brutal after-effects of a terrible storm.
Severe thunderstorms have cost about $14.9 billion in insured losses. The number behind uninsured losses is far harder to calculate, but the fact is that many of these homes are uninsured and face traumatizing damages that could more than just disrupt a family.
In the case of a tropical storm (a mild downgrade from a full hurricane) insured losses came to about $26 million. Losses overall make up about $52 billion in losses. This number is close to double for overall losses compared to insured losses, and this is across the board in winter storms, droughts, and flooding.
The fact of the matter is, uninsured damages are devastating. By being insured, you properly protect yourself from major key issues. This is the best way to prepare for a storm.
