NCDOI HurriClaims Center
Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey wants all North Carolinians to be educated and up-to-date as we recover from the effects of Hurricane Florence. Visit www.NCHurriClaims.com for information or call the Department of Insurance at:
As Hurricane Florence starts to move out of North Carolina and the recovery begins, please remember to remain cautious and careful by using these tips.
- Listen to authorities for information and special instructions.
- Be careful during clean-up. Wear protective clothing and work with someone else.
- Do not touch electrical equipment if it is wet or if you are standing in water. If it is safe to do so, turn off electricity at the main breaker or fuse box to prevent electric shock.
- Avoid wading in floodwater, which can contain dangerous debris. Underground or downed power lines can also electrically charge the water.
- Save phone calls for emergencies. Phone systems are often down or busy after a disaster. Use text messages or social media to communicate with family and friends.
- Document any property damage with photographs. Contact your insurance company for assistance.
