March marks the beginning of the spring tornado season, and March through May is the height of hail season. In order to assist you and your agency with tornado and hail weather preparedness, Liberty Mutual Insurance is providing Tornado and Hail Action Plans. These action plans contain weather precautions and reminders including information on:
- Roof protection
- Action plans and recommendations
- Warning signs
- Tornado emergency checklist
- Steps to take to protect your building
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) hail causes about $1 billion in damage to property and crops each year. Preparation is key to quick recovery after a loss. Fourteen million Americans live and work in areas of severe thunderstorms that have the potential to hit Texas and Oklahoma with hail the size of tennis balls. As we head into tornado and hail seasons in Texas, proper planning and procedures will help your agency recover quickly and resume business as usual.
