Spring weather is unpredictable. The warmer spring temperatures brings with it a mix of threats, including hailstorms, tornadoes, and flood damage.

According to P&C 360, here are the top 3 claims most likely to occur in the Mid-Atlantic Region (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, and West Virginia)

Water Damage: 27%

Wind Damage: 17%

Hail Damage: 11%

Tips to prepared for the unexpected:

  • Prepare your home’s exterior. Take the time to reinforce roofs before storm season hits.  Check your hurricane straps or clips which help secure the roof-to-wall connections.
  • Keep materials on hand. It’s important to have a disaster kit on hand in case of emergencies. What should go into a kit? Find out here.
  • Understand your insurance coverage. Make sure you are not under insured, especially with flood insurance.
