We know how scary natural disasters can be. From wildfires to excessive rainfall and flooding, the news and forecasts can be a source of worry and uncertainty. Hurricane season can bring its own headlines, especially this year's predictions of peak hurricane season for Virginia.

As a Virginia insurer, our company has lived through Atlantic hurricane seasons and insuring homes since 1896.  So we know the peace of mind that comes from being prepared. And we also know a little bit about getting your home ready for the next big storm. There's a ton of information online, but it can be challenging to decipher which resources are the most sound for your family.



That's why we created our Hurricane Preparedness Guide just for Virginians. We gathered the most reliable resources from the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM), the Insurance Information Institute (, and the American Red Cross of Virginia. We want you and your family to prepare well with the best information for any future hurricane.

We also have useful information that can answer questions you may have about home insurance, hurricane deductibles, insurance for flood damage, and preparing your roof, trees, and gutters for hurricane season. We encourage all of our members to have a home inventory. Having one makes any claims process run a whole lot smoother. We also recommend connecting with your independent agent to review and understand your coverage regularly.

Simply said- we're here for you! Use our guide to help your family prepare for a Virginia hurricane. Check out our severe weather claim FAQs and contact your local independent agent or contact us if you need to file a home or car insurance claim. We're right here and ready to help.
