Pennsylvania Hurricane Season MythBusters

9/28/2022 (Permalink)

We all watch the news and hear of hurricane season affecting coastal states. What most people don’t realize is that hurricane season can also affect inland states and cause damage to homes and businesses. Check out some of these hurricane season myths and truths to keep you safe this hurricane season:

Myth: Only homes and communities on the coast need to be worried when a hurricane is approaching. People living further inland are safe. 

Truth: Some hurricanes can create winds that have a 1000 mile diameter. These winds can also spawn other destructive weather such as tornadoes that can reach hundreds of miles inland. 

Myth: Flooding only happens in a coastal area.

Truth: Storm surges from hurricanes can travel tens of miles inland. Rain from hurricanes can cause flooding hundreds of miles away from the coastline. 

Myth: My home and homeowners insurance policy will cover all damages from a hurricane. 

Truth: Standard property insurance policies, like home or homeowners insurance, provide protection from many things, including some of the damages caused by a hurricane. They will not, however, cover flood damage, whether it comes from the storm surge or rainfall.   

While we won’t get hit with the brunt of a hurricane we can be susceptible to property damages caused by one. Stay alert during this season and monitor your local weather. SERVPRO of Allentown & Western Lehigh County offers 24/7 emergency services. Give us a call if your home or business becomes damaged this hurricane season, 610-776-7774!
