The 2016 Atlantic hurricane season is upon us and, according to weather.com, “this hurricane season is expected to be the most active since 2012…A total of 14 named storms, eight hurricanes and three major hurricanes are forecast during the coming season.” This year’s hurricane season began officially on June 1, 2016, and will last through to the end of November.

Hurricanes are intense storms that are capable of causing massive damage and widespread devastation. Hurricanes are well-known to be both life-threatening as well as hazardous to commercial and residential properties that are in the path of the storm. There are various types of damage that can occur during a hurricane in South Florida, most common is debris breaking windows and water fills a property.

Worked with Stellar on a project involving a kitchen flood. They were always there to help & answer all the questions I had - and they reached a fair settlement with my insurance for me. I probably wouldn't have gotten half of what I did without them! I'd easily recommend them to anyone needing a Public Adjuster.
