PCI urges business owners to prepare for storm season


The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America is strongly suggesting business owners in states such as Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama purchase BOP insurance to cover them against the risks tornadoes can pose.

Aside from protecting their business with the appropriate insurance, owners should also draft an emergency response plan in case a natural disaster devastates a business.

"Last year was one of the most destructive and deadly tornado seasons on record and highlights the importance of having an emergency response plan," said Christopher Hackett, director of personal lines policy for PCI. "Because tornadoes can occur rapidly and with little warning, advanced preparation is very important."

Recent research from the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center found that storms expected in the upcoming year double the normal number.  

According to Reuters, almost 50 people have died due to brutal storms that have ravaged the Midwest in recent weeks.
