The Insurance Information Institute (Triple-I), along with Colorado State University’s atmospheric research scientist Dr. Phil Klotzbach, will be conducting a satellite media tour on Tuesday, August 11, to talk about what may lie ahead for the remainder of the hurricane season.

We will be talking with news organizations throughout the U.S. about the steps individuals and businesses in hurricane-prone states need to take to protect their property and possessions with the right type—and amount—of insurance.

The following subject-matter experts will be available for interviews:

  • Sean Kevelighan, CEO, Insurance Information Institute (Triple-I)
  • Dr. Phil Klotzbach, Research Scientist, Colorado State University and a Triple-I Non-Resident Scholar
  • Laura L. Favinger, Chief Administrative Officer, Triple-I
  • Mark Friedlander, Director, Corporate Communications, Triple-I

Damage caused by tropical storms and hurricanes can upend lives for months, and sometimes years. Even in the country’s most vulnerable coastal states, individuals and businesses may underestimate their risk or have insufficient insurance coverage, operating without either an evacuation or a business continuity plan.

As the peak of 2020’s already busy Atlantic hurricane season approaches, it’s time to make sure you’re ready.
