Hurricane season and homeowners: prepare with home insurance


Hurricane season in Canada starts in June and lasts until the end of November. This is when northern Atlantic Ocean waters are warm enough to support conditions for hurricanes, tropical storms and other severe weather. Atlantic Canada sees an average of six tropical storms a year. With a minimum wind speed of 120 kilometers per hour, torrential rainfall and storm surges, hurricanes can cause substantial damage to home properties.

Warm weather means spring flooding and sewer back-up. Are you prepared?
