Hurricanes are always a threat when you live in Coastal Regions, although living in these beautiful areas they have their consequences.  We have provided some Hurricane Awareness Links & Statistics.  Here at Pricemypolicy.com we believe in not only providing you with the best Homeowners Insurance for Coastal, Flood, Hurricane, & Windstorm, but also that you have an area that can help you prep for a Major Storm.  Being prepared is half the battle.

North Carolina has a very appealing climate, and the weather here is a large reason why so many people are moving to live in this area. But we also have our fair share of severe weather, and it is critical to understand patterns in severe weather to protect the lives and property of our citizens. For this reason, the State Climate Office studies the history of severe weather in North Carolina. We not only study tropical cyclones, tornadoes, and winter storm climatology’s, but we make this information available to everyone for planning, decision-making, and general education. Our website has a history of tropical storms that have passed through North Carolina, and we regularly give presentations on the threats of flooding and wind damage due to tropical cyclones. Such research and outreach help to inform the public and improve severe weather management and mitigation in North Carolina.   Click here to Read more > http://bit.ly/K24tG 

If your home has been flooded, you should:
Before turning the power back on, have your home’s electrical system checked out by an electrician.
If the pilot light on your natural gas furnace, hot-water heater or stove has gone out, have it re-lit by a professional.
Throw away flood-contaminated mattresses, upholstered furniture, carpets and padding, wallboard and wallpaper because they can not be cleaned all the way through.
Clean plaster or tile walls, hard-surface floors and other household surfaces by scrubbing with soap and water and disinfect them with a solution of one cup of bleach to four gallons of water.
Pay particular attention to areas that come in contact with food, or where small children play. After cleaning a room or item, go over it again with disinfectant to kill germs and odors left by flood waters.
Dry everything completely after cleaning. Click here to Read More > http://bit.ly/19jJMQ
