The National Hurricane Center calls Hurricane Irma a “potentially catastrophic Category 5 Hurricane.” As the state of Florida begins evacuation procedures, Miami-based Hunton Insurance lawyers Walter Andrews and Andrea DeField provide commentary and analysis to the Daily Business Review on steps that South Florida insureds should take now in preparation for the impending storm. These include ensuring coverage for both windstorm and flood damage, as well as considering these often standard coverages in light of anticipated claims post-storm:
- Coverage for physical damage to insured property;
- Debris removal;
- Mitigation costs;
- Extra expense;
- Business interruption coverage;
- Orders of civil authority and ingress/egress coverage; and
- Service and utility interruptions coverage.
