What if another Category 5 Hurricane Andrew struck again this year as it did 25 years ago? Would your policyholders be ready?
The critical lesson we learned from Andrew is it only takes one storm to devastate an entire area, and it can be the very first one of the season as Andrew was in 1992, which still ranks as the second most costly hurricane ever for insurers. 2017’s Hurricane Season officially began June 1. Although initial predictions from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in May called for a relatively quiet hurricane season, a new NOAA forecast issued in August calls for “a higher likelihood of an above-normal season.”
