Another Tropical Storm Misses Florida

As of this writing, another tropical storm is hitting the Carolinas and is forecast to strike New England.

One of the most frequent questions I get from customers is about storms amd hurricanes and flood insurance.

As tropical storm Arthur is demonstrating, other parts of the country are hit as much if not more than Florida, and the Tampa/Sarasota area in particular.  On hurricanecity.com, Tampa ranks 20th out of all cities affected by a storm or hurricane since 1871.

The hype about hurricanes and flood insurance are just that.  If you are moving here from the eastern seaboard, you will probably be seeing the same flood insurance risks as our area.
