Today is the best day to get your home hurricane ready and ensure you have all the insurance you need to keep your home safe. This article will provide you with the resources to ensure you get the best insurance policies to protect against hurricane damage.

Step 3: Check your state’s rules.
Every state is different, but most states will require that you have wind damage and flood insurance policies to be covered in the event of a hurricane.
