Last year, 58,000 wildfires burned 7.1 million acres in the US in 2021, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. Unfortunately, recent reports indicate we’re in for much of the same in 2022. Let’s take a closer look at these reports and what you can do to be prepared.
The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) issued a report predicting more energy emergencies this summer. While the Midwest, Texas, and Southern California have the great concern, electrical disruptions can occur anywhere. Long story short? Everyone should learn how to prep for a power outage.
Hurricane season is well underway, which means homeowners along the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coast are (hopefully!) prepared for the possibility of fierce storms hitting their homes. But it looks like climate change’s impact on hurricanes means people beyond this area may see more named storms.
Historically, tornado season starts in March and lasts until June with states in Tornado Alley seeing the most activity. But scientists say the center of tornado activity actually appears to be more towards the south and east.
Despite increasing climate risks, more than 220,000 people moved to Florida in 2021. Long story short? Human behavior is hard to change, and people are ultimately going to live in places that bring them joy. The real question is: how can we make them safer wherever they land?
The increase in these catastrophic losses is forcing many insurance companies to raise their home insurance rates, pull out of high-risk regions, or worse, becoming insolvent. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
