April is the beginning of tornado season, and in some ways, disaster season. Many insureds feel secure in their homes but are not aware of how frequently floods, snow melt, tornadoes and other natural disasters occur or what they should do in order to be prepared.






 When spring comes many people are relieved that winter is over and the mess of snow and ice are behind us. However, spring is just the beginning of seasonal weather that can cause significant damage to property and generate claims. February to April is snow melt season; as the snow melts, flooding is possible, and many people overlook flood insurance because they are not by the ocean, a lake, or river. Plenty of areas nowhere near water flood due to snow melt.
