With much of the Texas Gulf Coast bracing for Hurricane Harvey to hit landfall today, home and business owners are preparing for the worst. The Weather Channel is predicting “torrential rainfall, storm-surge flooding and destructive winds” throughout the Texas Gulf Coast and parts of Louisiana.

In order to help local area residents in Hurricane Harvey's path prepare, we have compiled the following links to important safety and insurance information:

According to the Insurance Information Institute’s statistics insured property damage caused by 2008's Hurricane Ike in Texas totaled $9.8 billion. Luis R. Esteves, Principal & Executive General Adjuster at Texas-based Jansen/Adjusters International, cautions that the unpredictability of these storms is what makes them so dangerous.

We will have no idea about the extent of the damage until after it passes so I always recommend that residents and business owners prepare for the worst in these situations. When storms such as this one hit, almost every affected homeowner files an insurance claim immediately following the event. This means that insurance company adjusters are inundated with claims, phone calls and questions. It is especially important to be persistent and to keep detailed notes concerning everyone you speak to and on what you are told by the insurance company.”
