Be ready for hurricane season. Today you can determine your personal hurricane risk, find out if you live in a hurricane evacuation zone, and review/update insurance policies. You can also make a list of items to replenish hurricane emergency supplies and start thinking about how you will prepare your home for the coming hurricane season. If you live in hurricane-prone areas, you are encouraged to complete these simple preparations before hurricane season begins on June 1.

Hurricane Season begins June 1, 2022. Please make certain you have FLOOD INSURANCE in place.

Call the National Flood Insurance Program @ 1-800-427-4661 OR your local Insurance Agent for a quote today.

In most cases there is a 30 day waiting period.

A significant part of FEMA’s NFIP Transformation is Risk Rating 2.0, which will fundamentally change the way FEMA prices insurance and determines an individual property’s flood risk. Risk Rating 2.0 is equity in action. With Risk Rating 2.0, individuals will no longer pay more than their share in flood insurance premiums based on the value of their homes. Roughly two-thirds of policyholders with older pre-FIRM homes will see a premium decrease. FEMA will reduce disaster-related suffering and disaster-related costs in Mississippi through insurance and the mitigation of flood risks by leveraging advances in industry best practices, technology, and flood risk modeling.
