Hurricanes are an inevitable part of nature and the weather here on the Crystal Coast. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th.

Researchers from North Carolina State University predict that the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season will be move active overall compared to the past. They predict 14 to 18 tropical storms and hurricanes forming in the Atlantic basin. The Atlantic basin includes the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. From 1950 to 2017, the average number of named storms per year is 11. "Of those named storms, seven to 11 may grow strong enough to become hurricanes ... with the possibility of three to five storms becoming major hurricanes." Source

Even if the coast of North Carolina is not directly affected by these predicted storms, it's likely that we will at least receive some impact from them. Hurricanes and tropical storms can cause a great deal of damage to your home and your property. That's why it's so important to make sure that your home and property are properly covered and protected so that in the event of damage, that you can recover as much as possible and receive compensation.

It is important to understand exactly what your homeowners insurance covers. A separate plan specifically for hurricane damage may be necessary as well as flood insurance. Make sure that all of the bases are covered so that your home and property are sufficiently covered in the unforunate event that we experience a bad storm here on the Crystal Coast this hurricane season.
