Sun Communities Offers Preliminary Assessment of Ian Impact

The company has access to all its properties and assessments are in the early stages. Restoration and cleanup activities have begun at all affected properties. Convoys of supplies, food, travel trailers and trucks, all assembled and organized by Sun team members, have been delivered to Sun’s Florida properties. The company continues to evaluate the impact of the storm.

Three RV properties in the Fort Myers area, comprising approximately 2,500 sites, sustained significant flooding and wind damage from the hurricane. Additionally, the sea wall and docks at one marina in the area were damaged. At other affected MH and RV properties, most of the damage appears to be limited to trees, roofs, fences, skirting and carports. At other affected marina properties, docks, buildings and landscaping sustained limited wind and water damage.

The company maintains property, casualty, flood and business interruption insurance for its portfolio of communities, subject to customary deductibles and limits. Additionally, through its Sun Unity program, the company has launched a charitable giving campaign for hurricane relief with a matching corporate contribution.

“Our thoughts and support go out to all those impacted by Hurricane Ian. Nothing matters more than the safety of our residents, guests and team members.
