Households can protect themselves against weather damage this winter with Nelson Policies Non-Standard Household Insurance

The 15th and 16th of October 2017 marked the 30th anniversary of what remains one of the most talked about British weather incidents of modern times. The ‘Great Storm’ of October 1987, which brought gusts of more than 100 mph to the British Isles, resulting in the loss of 22 lives and around $1 billion worth of damage acted as a wake-up call for property owners to be more prepared for the potential devastation extreme weather can cause.

In recent months, the news has been awash with extreme weather events, wreaking damage and devastation in their path. So far, 2017 has been the most active hurricane season on record, falling only behind 1993 and 2005. In 2016 alone, extreme weather occurrences cost the world economy around $170 billion, five times more than during the 1980s.

With the unpredictable and unforgiving nature of the weather seemingly on the rise, how can homeowners and vacant property owners protect themselves for the potential devastation extreme weather creates? One of the most effective ways homeowners can prepare for weather-related incidents and protect against potential damage caused by hurricanes, flooding and storms, is by taking out an adequate insurance policy.
