What to Expect After a Storm
Severe storms can be furious and frightening, and you should put safety first. If your neighborhood has seen a lot of damage, use caution. If you suspect structural damage or more flooding, don’t go inside. Spending a few nights away is a small thing compared to your health.
Once the storm has passed, it’s important to check out the impact and plan for remediation. Below, learn about the problems different storm systems can cause and how to keep your property, and yourself, safe in different circumstances.
Severe damage from the majority of storms is covered by property insurance, but the ins and outs vary. What you must pay depends on your premiums and deductibles, the building, how much damage there is, 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 get short shrift if you don’t act right away.
