Naples Residents Can Face Substantial Losses from Tropical Storms
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that in Florida, tropical storm season begins on June 1st and ends on November 30th. During this time, Florida residents should take precautions to promote the safety of their homes.
Despite even the best efforts, tropical storms can be unpredictable and cause thousands of dollars in losses:
- The Insurance Information Institute (III) notes that tropical storms and hurricanes accounted for 38.2% of catastrophe-related losses from 1997 to 2016.
- Residents in Naples also feel the impact of major hurricanes and tropical storms. The City of Naples notes that thousands of flood insurance policies are in place for residents.
