DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) —With hurricane season here, one Wiregrass insurance agent wants to make sure residents stay prepared.
Rachel Davidson, the Owner of Brightway Insurance, said it’s important for residents to get hurricane coverage now before any storms are on the actual horizon.
Davidson said many times when there is a tropical storm coming, agents aren’t able to write any new policies. She tells WDHN the biggest tip she can give, is to purchase flood insurance because many times it’s not covered in a hurricane insurance policy.
“The biggest thing that a lot of consumers don’t always know is that flood is not covered on a homeowners policy,” Davidson said. “So if you have floodwaters due to a hurricane, that floodwater is not necessarily going to be covered in your homeowner’s policy.”
Davidson recommends people who live near flood zones reach out to their agents and make sure they have some type of flood coverage.
