The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) “stands ready to help with any insurance related questions as the Tropical Storm Emily begins to make impact along the coast,” the group said in a Monday press release. PCI and other industry groups work closely with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, assisting Florida homeowners and business owners before and after any disaster.
Gov. Rick Scott on Monday declared a state of emergency in 31 Florida counties in response to Tropical Storm Emily. “A state of emergency gives the state the flexibility to work with local governments to ensure they have all the resources they may need,” a press release from the Governor’s Office said.
