     Model data is now pretty certain that at least the outer banks will be hit hard.  Mandatory evacuations are now in force over much of the east coast.  If you are going to work this storm follow us for updated information at www.facebook.com/hailwatch

    If you need additional information on Irene goto:  http://www.hailwatch.com/content.ph...icaneirene

    Stay safe out there!

    As of this time, Irene appears to be a dud in regards to creating a mass volume of claims. But give the public adjusters and plaintiff attorneys a chance. This appears on parallel to the whiplash soft tisue injury following a fender bender in which the ambulance chasing attorney counsels the potential cilent "let our doctor's determine if you are injured and to what extent". In the case of Hurricane Irene, they may suggest to the insured property owners "let our experts determine your damages. You may have tens of thousands of dollars in damages you are not even aware of". Think about it. All the lifted and non adhered shingles. All the cracks to the drywall, some of which may have actually have been caused by the earthquake. The trial lawyers and PA's will contend they were caused by the 40 mph wind gusts. So, do not despair. There may be lots of claims. Whether they are legitimate or not is another matter.

    Whilst I do NOT care for Pa's and plaintiff attorney's, it's all to do about me or my adjusters not able to close these claims and therefore get paid at all until the claim is resolved.
     

    However the bottom line is if they were not needed they would not be thriving.

    There's a multitude of reasons for the existance of PA's. Most of which are of our own doing. Society's own doing, that is..

    If the adjuster communicates well, recognizes ALL the event damages and pays for the repairs, there is very little need for a PA.

    Did I mention communication?
