What Is the Difference Between A Hurricane Watch and A Hurricane Warning?

 

As hurricane season approaches, we thought it would be a good idea to review the difference between a hurricane warning and a hurricane watch.   Often times during the hurricane season, you might hear an announcement about a hurricane watch or warning.   Let’s take a moment and define them.

 

A Hurricane Watch indicates there is a threat of a hurricane, but it is not imminent.  This notice usually covers a specific area and time period.

 

A Hurricane Warning indicates a hurricane is expected within 24-hours with sustained winds of 74 mph or more.  (Note:  Hurricanes are classified into 5 major categories based on wind speed.)

 

It is important to remember; insurance companies will suspend writing coverage during either a Hurricane Watch or Hurricane Warning.   Make sure before hurricane season starts, you have reviewed your coverage's and paid your premium.
