Wikipedia writes, “The location of Gulf Shores on the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico makes it vulnerable to hurricanes. In September 1979, Hurricane Frederic leveled most of the town. In September 2004, Hurricane Ivan caused extensive wind and flooding damage. In 2005, while still cleaning up from Hurricane Ivan, Hurricane Katrina caused extensive damage and flooding.” After Hurricane Ivan and Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2004 and 2005, several insurance companies dropped out while some other bigger companies decided not to provide wind insurance around the Gulf. Ivan and Katrina changed how insurance companies did business on the gulf coast. Whether you live in a home or condo, we at Heritage Insurance of Alabama are confident that we can provide a full policy with competitive prices. If you already have a policy with another insurance company that doesn’t protect against wind damage, Heritage Insurance can provide a “wind only policy” for you.
