Severe Weather Damage Scenarios
Big storms can be furious and frightening, and safety has to be your first priority. If your neighborhood has seen major problems, be careful. If you suspect structural damage or more flooding, keep your distance. Find another place to stay until you’re confident it’s safe.
Once the danger has passed, it’s important to check out the damage and get started with cleanup and restoration. Below, read more about the problems different storm systems can cause and how to keep your property, and yourself, safe in different circumstances.
Coverage amounts vary based on your neighborhood, your policy, the severity of damage and other factors.
Most weather damage is covered by insurance, but filing ASAP is vital. If you delay, you could lose coverage and see rate increases anyway.
