Technology has allowed us to know when a hurricane is heading for our area, and be able to see its path. This leaves no room for guessing, and can provide us with the time needed to ensure we are as prepared as possible, including having adequate coverage with San Diego homeowners insurance.


The loss of utilities is one of the most common occurrences during and after a hurricane hits. Therefore, items like flashlights, batteries, non-perishable food and bottled water will allow for meals to be prepared without the need for electricity. In addition to the human members of your family, any pets will also need to be cared for. And so ensure that your pets will have the food and water they need as you shop for your own supplies.


Making sure that your vehicles are filled up with gas will help you avoid long lines at the pumps should you need to evacuate your home for a period of time. You may also want to ensure that you have gas on had for tools like your chainsaw. Having cash on hand can ensure you are able to get the supplies you need in the event that power is out in your area for more than a few days.


Being prepared also means you have the right homeowners insurance policy to protect you from unexpected perils that can end up devastating your budget without the right safety net.  Make sure you educate yourself on all of your available options and understand what is and isn't covered.
