trip insurance

I will be in Hatteras in mid Sept of this year. Should I get trip insurance in the event there is a formal evacuation? What are the odds of having the island evacuated?

Yes, Sept is prime storm month. The chances of needing it are maybe double on Hatteras than up north where there are less evacuations, and it also covers a lot of stuff other than evacuations which don't occur but every few years.
