According to the Insurance Information Institute’s statistics insured property damage caused by 2008’s Hurricane Ike in Texas totaled $9.8 billion. Carl Gross, Vice President & CAO of Globe Midwest Adjusters International, cautions that the unpredictability of these storms is what makes them so dangerous.

Carl-GrossOur thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who is located in the potentially affected areas. While we hope that this storm is downgraded and is less severe than predicted, we know that hurricanes can ravage entire communities. Right now, residents, leaders, first responders and volunteers are rightfully focused on enforcing safety precautions, preparing for rescue efforts and providing vital support to affected neighborhoods. The danger of being injured or worse is real so please do not underestimate the power of these storms. Property damage is a secondary concern and can be dealt with once your employees and loved ones are safe.
