Best Website Resources for Hurricane Preparedness

Here are Garcia insurance, we like to be prepared for all types of situations including hurricanes. Recently, we posted a blog with our staff’s favorite and most helpful tips to prepare for a hurricane and now we are sharing the best online resources that we know of to help prepare for and track bad weather.

Just like we tell our insurance clients, having a plan for different types of disasters, especially hurricanes here in New Orleans, is so important and can make a difference in whether you are able to recover from a catastrophic event or not. The websites below can help you track storms, receive current weather updates, find pet-friendly hotels to ensure your four-legged friends aren’t left behind, as well as the best place for you to file a claim with us.
