A Hurricane Warning and Watch are in effect for portions of the east Florida coastline. Gulfshore Insurance’s Fort Lauderdale office will be closed starting today Wednesday, October 5th and will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.

*Please note, our west coast offices and all of our phone lines will remain open and we are available to assist you before, during, and after the storm. You can reach our team at (800) 793-5238Call: (800) 793-5238.

The National Hurricane Center continues to stress that when a hurricane is forecast to take a track roughly parallel to a coastline, as Matthew is forecast to do from Florida to South Carolina, it becomes very difficult to estimate impacts well in advance. A small deviation of the track could bring the core of the storm onshore OR completely offshore. Please take the necessary precautions now to prepare for the possibility of a severe storm impact.
