Maine Residents Urged to Prepare for Severe Summer Weather

June 24, 2014

Maine officials are encouraging residents to protect their homes against severe summer weather.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage and Bureau of Insurance Superintendent Eric Cioppa say that the beginning of the Atlantic hurricane season means that residents should be ready for possible high winds, flooding and other things that can damage homes. Hurricane season runs June 1 through Nov. 30.

Officials say Mainers should examine their homeowner or renter insurance policies to make sure their coverage is sufficient and consider whether they also need to purchase flood insurance.

They’re also urging Mainers to inventory of their property and assemble an emergency supply kit that includes several days’ of drinking water, non-perishable goods, first aid materials, batteries and insurance company contact information, among other things.

    Hey Mainers, if you live near the coast, expect the ocean to rise and flood your homes due to Global Warming. We know that is true because RBC told us so.
