Severe storms—known as hurricanes or Nor'easters—bring high winds and flooding. Winds combine with tides to cause storm surge, a huge wave that can push water miles inland. The storms also bring heavy precipitation that comes in bands. The bands can extend for hundreds of miles inland, causing widespread flooding. Slow-moving storms, such as Hurricane Irene in 2011, can travel into mountainous regions and produce especially heavy rain and significant flooding.
With a combination of soaking rain, flying debris, high winds, and tidal surges, hurricanes and tropical storms can pack a powerful punch. Besides causing extensive damage in coastal areas, hurricanes and tropical storms often bring flooding hundreds of miles inland, placing communities that normally would not be affected by the strongest hurricane winds in great danger. Just a few inches of water from a flood can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage.
Everyone needs to be financially protected from the dangers of hurricanes. Because most policies take 30 days to go into effect, the time to act is now.
