Storm Damage Scenarios
Severe storms can be frightening and dangerous, and safety has to be your first priority. If your area has seen major problems, be careful. If you think your home has been structurally damaged or if flood risk remains, don’t go inside until a professional says it’s safe. Spending a few nights at a friend’s house or in an emergency shelter is a small price to pay.
Once the disaster has passed, it’s important to assess the damage and get started with cleanup and restoration.
Here is a list of storm related damages your property may suffer from:
Lightning and Thunderstorm Damage
Winter Storm Damage
Storm-related Flood Damage and Tidal Surges
High Winds, Tornadoes and Hurricane Damage
