Standing By…

By August 25, 2016February 3rd, 2020No Comments

99 is looking more organized than it has thus far and we can reasonably expect to see the formation of tropical storm Hermine sometime tomorrow. By Sunday the system will reach Southern Florida and that’s when things get interesting…

Given the threat this system  poses to a large swath of the Gulf Coast as well as Southern Florida and even the Carolina’s WE ARE NOW PUTTING ADJUSTERS ON STANDBY. If you are on our roster, please check in with your dispatcher or log-in to our website and complete the status update form with your current availability. If you are not on our roster, you can complete our application here-

One of the more reliable forecasts goes like this; 99 makes landfall across Southern Florida and the Keys on Sunday as a tropical storm or category 1 hurricane. After that it will move into the Gulf, head north  and make a second landfall somewhere between the Florida Panhandle and Louisiana on Tuesday or Wednesday. If the system can spend any prolonged period of time over the warm the second landfall could certainly be at hurricane strength. While there are still a lot of possibilities, they all point to a U.S. landfall (at least the first one) this weekend.




Many of the states in the potential path of 99 require adjuster licensing. Below is some information to assist you in obtaining those licenses. Even though 99 will end up as a tropical storm or hurricane (or both!), there is no guarantee emergency licensing will be available. It may be wise to work on getting some of these licenses now.
