If you’re planning to travel anytime between June 1 and Nov. 30, it’s crucial to be prepared for hurricane season says Jeremy Murchland, President of Seven Corners, an innovative and service-focused travel insurance and benefit management company serving a global market with headquarters in Carmel, Indiana.
“In order to protect you and your family from the uncertainties of hurricane season, it’s important to plan ahead. At Seven Corners, we stress purchasing travel insurance that allows you to cancel or interrupt your trip due to weather-related reasons,” continues Murchland.
Hurricanes are nature’s most powerful and dangerous storm, and they can cause storm surge flooding, inland flooding from heavy rains, destructive winds, tornadoes, high surf and rip currents, severe property damage and death. According to the National Weather Service, on average, 12 tropical storms, six of which become hurricanes, form over the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea or Gulf of Mexico during this time. This year’s hurricane season is predicted to be more active than usual, with the latest outlook by The Weather Company predicting an increase in the number of storms expected.
