When Florida Florida begins evacuation procedures, Miami-based Hunton Insurance attorneys Walter Andrews and Andrea DeField provide comments and analyzes to the Daily Business Review on the steps that South Florida insureds should take now to prepare for the transient storm.

- Decree for business interruptions;
- Decision by civil authority and preamble / initial cover; and
- Service and maintenance interruption coverage.
