Damage Storms Can Cause
Severe storms can be furious and frightening, and safety has to be your first priority. If your area has seen serious storm-related damage, be careful. If you think your home has been structurally damaged or flooding risk is a problem, keep your distance. Spending a few nights away is a small price to pay.
Once the disaster has passed, it’s important to assess the damage and plan for remediation. Below, learn about the problems different storm systems can cause and how to stay safe in different circumstances.
Storm Damage Insurance
The payout you get from insurance depends on policy specifics, the severity of harm to your property, your property value and more.
Keep track of the damage, keep all receipts and call your insurer and a storm damage contractor.
