El Niño: 5 tips for preparing for a wet winter
After four years of drought, Californians could soon be contending with a wet winter as one of the strongest El Niños on record is brewing in the Pacific Ocean. Here are five tips for preparing for the possibility of a season of heavy storms:

1) Have any trees that appear weakened by drought inspected by an arborist. In high winds, downed trees and branches can knock out power or seriously damage homes and vehicles.

2) Have roof repairs made and other leaks fixed before it starts to rain.

3) Make sure gutters are clear of leaves and other debris.

4) Consider flood insurance. Homeowners policies typically do not cover flood damage. Most flood policies require a 30-day waiting period.

5) In case of flooding, mudslides or other storm-related natural disasters, have an emergency plan in place for your family, and a dry place for storm supplies.

At Insurance by Allied Brokers we have great rates for flood with no elevation certificate required. Call Steve Fox 650-328-1000 for more info.

CGLI: What your business cannot do without
If you think a picturesque 18-hole Golf Course is good for your business, think again. Gearhart Golf Links in Oregon begs to differ. The Course is the target of a lawsuit filed by a Californian couple Joan and Eric Eckerstrom. In 2013, the Eckerstroms were walking on a street near the course when Joan was hit on the head by a golf ball.

The Eckerstroms seek damages to the tune of USD 900,000 for various reasons. Lawyers for the couple allege the Course had insufficient barricades around.

Like Gearhart Golf Links, your business too is fraught with risk. In addition to injuries to people, there is the risk of property damage, business interruption and theft. In such a scenario, Commercial General Liability Insurance (CGLI) provides protection and prevents financial impairment to your business.

Insurance by Allied Brokers offers CGLI with a wide range of premiums depending on your business and unique risks.
