With Hurricane Preparedness Week taking place this week, now is the time for home insurance carriers to look back and identify key lessons from last year’s hurricane season to ensure that they’re properly prepared to expedite claims quickly and efficiently if a major hurricane were to hit again in 2019.

One of the key lessons from 2018 is that catastrophic events, like hurricanes, have unfortunately become the norm. Hurricanes are getting stronger and creating even more damage each year, especially as homes become increasingly connected. While hurricanes are unpredictable in terms of their ultimate path and strength when they make landfall, one thing carriers can do now to better prepare is evaluate home insurance claims data from previous catastrophic events and adjust their strategic plans accordingly.
