With the 2019 hurricane season upon us, Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey is encouraging residents to be prepared this season to avoid the suffering that followed last year’s Hurricane Florence.

To do this, Commissioner Causey is scheduling disaster relief town hall meetings across the state to inform residents, agents and real estate agents. 

These meetings will discuss what to do before, during and after the storm so that residents’ properties are protected and/or covered in the event of storm damage.

These meetings will also discuss the importance of flood insurance so that residents can alleviate the suffering from extreme property loss due to flooding that was experienced last year. Standard homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover flood damage.

In addition, the meetings will open the floor to answer any questions from the audience.

Furthermore, the town hall will share the NCDOI vast functions and provide contact information in the event of any claim question.

Dr. Michelle Osborne, Chief Deputy Commissioner of Insurance, will conduct the Boone public town hall set for Wednesday, July 10, at 7:00 p.m. in the Watauga High School, Auditorium, at 300 Go Pioneers Dr, Boone.
