So what does Life Insurance, Property Insurance and Financial Planning
have to do with Disaster Preparedness?
Natural Disasters in the United States
The country is prone to many different types of natural disasters, and each region has its own risks.
Hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, floods, blizzards, lightning storms and earthquakes hit
with alarming frequency.
In 2018, there were eight Atlantic hurricanes and a record-breaking seven subtropical storms.
There were over 100 wildfires, with the Carr Fire alone destroying well over 1,000 homes.
The Camp Fire was the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history.
It killed 85 people and destroyed the entire town of Paradise.
Roads and bridges collapsed, and homes were trashed when a 7.0 earthquake hit Anchorage,
and a massive blizzard caused a 70-car pileup on a freeway in Iowa.
Natural disasters are becoming more frequent - and more expensive.
The average number of billion-dollar disasters per year over the last 5 years
is more than double the average since 1980.
While life insurance cannot prevent natural disasters from occurring,
it can prevent your loved ones from being unable to pay the bills if something happens to you.
