Hurricane Irma has passed the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico and continues on a path towards southern Florida.  Currently a category 5 hurricane, Irma is expected to bring life-threatening wind, storm surge and rainfall hazards over the weekend and early next week. At this time, Irma is also expected to impact the Georgia and South Carolina coasts by Tuesday.* We will continue to monitor this storm and keep you updated on any potential impacts.

Our carrier partners are standing at alert to assist the affected areas.  

Flood Claim Tips

  • Check for structural damage before entering.
  • Don't dry anything that will have to be removed (carpet, drywall, insulation).
  • Take photos, save all receipts and track your time spent cleaning.
  • Make a list of damaged personal property.
  • If building property is removed (drywall, carpet, carpet pad), keep it on the premises. If it must be removed, cut a sample piece to give to claims adjuster.
  • We have included the Flood Claims Handbook to assist you in answering questions. Assurant field staff adjusters will also provide this document to policyholders at the time of inspection.
