The first scare came just 11 days after hurricane season began. Alberto threatened, then fizzled. Later, Ernesto came in August, brining rain and little else for Floridians.
So it was with smiles on their faces that state officials dropped the flag on hurricane season.

Across the state, a collective sigh of relief. Resident we talked with were Happy
Glad its over Fantastic Relieved.

The remnants are of two bad years are still showing up in mailboxes in the form of higher insurance premiums… and theres no immediate relief in sight.

Lieutenant Governor Toni Jennings says even a good year like 2006 isnt enough to lower rates. A couple more good years will help us because in fact as the risk continues to diminish, the insurers will return to the market with lower prices but it wont happen overnight. says Jennings.

State lawmakers meet in mid January to work on insurance. But anything they accomplish that could result in savings to you could take a year or more to work their way into policy renewals.

State officials are urging homeowners in coastal counties to get a free home inspection and figure out how to fortify their homes before the next hurricane season. 13 thousand homes have already been inspected and 45 thousand more are on the waiting list.
