What to Expect After Severe Weather Events
Major storms can be furious and frightening, and you should put safety first. If your neighborhood has seen major problems, play it safe. If you think your home has been structurally damaged or flood risk is a problem, keep your distance. Spending a few nights elsewhere is a small thing compared to your health.
After the danger has passed, repairing and restoring your property should be the next priority. Read the information below about how various storm systems can cause specific damage.
Storm Damage Insurance
Serious damage from many storms is covered under home and business insurance policies, but the ins and outs change. Your financial responsibility depends on your policy, the structure, the amount of damage, property values in your neighborhood and much more.
The faster you are to file a claim, the better chance you have for fair payouts. You could miss out if you don’t act quickly.
