Statewide Campaign Urges People to Get Flood Insurance
Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon is conducting his annual statewide public awareness campaign to encourage preparations for the upcoming hurricane season. He reminds citizens that now is the time to review their insurance policies and make plans to protect their family and property. “The first thing to do is get with your agent,” explains Donelon. “Go over all your coverages. Know what your named storm or hurricane deductible is.” He advises residents to get flood insurance.
Donelon also recommends walking through your house with your phone making sure you document your assets in place before you may suffer the loss and damages from a storm– that will help you in making your claim in the aftermath. He adds residents should take their insurance policy information with them in the case of evacuation so you can reach out to your agent or company and get the claim filed sooner rather than later.
