According to the weather specialists, hurricanes can appear anywhere from June 1 to November 30. Given the statistics of damages and losses, it's exceedingly wise to incorporate the proper steps that help stem related devastation to human life, home, business, car and any other property you own.While homeowners, renters and business owners should systematically procure appropriate insurance coverage, it is those who live directly in the line of storm danger that need to ensure their policy covers all angles of possible risks. To this important end, coastal property owners should go over their plans carefully. Enlisting the service of an understanding independent insurance agent will be of added benefit. He or she should be able to candidly tell you about any discrepancies while advising you how to fill in the gaps so that you will have the necessary coverage when you need it most.
As of April 2011, Colorado State University, Weather Service International, and Tropical Storm Risk have lowered the number of hurricanes they're expecting in the Atlantic Basin for the 2011 season. Nevertheless, they all agree the season should be well above average. CSU expects 16 named storms and 9 hurricanes while Weather Service International foresees a more impactful season along the U.S. coastline. They estimate 15 named storms and 8 hurricanes. Tropical Storm Risk calls for 14 named storms and 7 to 8 hurricanes. They realize that it is, of course, impossible to precisely predict this or any season's hurricane activity in early April.Because a land-falling hurricane can cause extensive damage, risk management experts work with models that are designed to estimate insured losses due to these tricky tropical tempests. What has presented even more of a problem for these experts is trying to anticipate where and how many hurricanes will make landfall. The three major catastrophe modelers, AIR Worldwide, EQECAT, and Risk Management Solutions (RMS) have recently concluded that their near term hurricane models have significantly overestimated losses due to land-falling hurricanes. For example, they initially projected insured loss levels for the 2006-2010 period at 35 percent above the long-term average. The actual cumulative losses, however, were less than one third of the long-term cumulative average.
