Proactive Storm Preparation

Understand Your Hurricane Coverage

  • Review your homeowner’s policy ahead of time to ensure you understand your coverage in the event of a hurricane or flood.
  • Homeowner’s insurance does not cover flood damage. To be protected, you must purchase flood insurance. Contact your agent to learn more.

Prepare Ahead of Time

Just Before the Storm

  • Turn off circuit breakers.
  • Close and secure all doors and windows.
  • Fill bathtubs with water for hygiene and cleaning after the storm.
  • Listen for the National Hurricane Center reports and follow all instructions, particularly those for evacuation.

After the Storm

  • If you lose power, unplug all electronics to prevent power surge damage once power is restored.
  • Take inventory of any damaged property or possessions. Do not dispose of any items without prior approval from your insurance claims adjuster.
  • In the event of a loss, contact VYRD Claims Services at 844.217.6993, and a Claims expert will assist you.
