FSU Professor Says People Arent Prepared For Big Storm

July 18th, 2008 by flanews

People who want to learn more about hurricane safety and insurance need only one website. An FSU professor has created a one stop shop online with updates on hurricane warnings and insurance. The site has tips on how to harden your home and links to sites that compare insurance companies and rates. FSU professor Pat Maroney created the site at the request of lawmakers. Maroney says he hopes the site will teach people what to do when a storm hits.

We want to make sure people evacuate during a storm. We assume people evacuate. The facts show us a lot of people do not evacuate when they should and certainly there can be some dire consequences, so our research efforts are focused in that area, said Maroney.

You can find the site at www.stormrisk.org.
