HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - As Tropical Storm Ana moves closer to the state, Hawaii Insurance Commissioner Gordon Ito urges residents to review their homeowner's and hurricane insurance policies, and identify who to contact to file a claim. Homeowners should also familiarize themselves with the type of insurance they have and what is covered under each policy.
"As we saw with residents we met with after Hurricane Iselle, there was confusion about what is covered under a homeowner's policy versus a hurricane policy," said Ito. "Policyholders should review their insurance policies right away to find out what type of coverage they have and the proper steps to take post-event. If they have any questions or concerns they should call their agent or insurance company."
The Insurance Division also offers the following disaster preparedness tips:
