Severe Weather Damage Scenarios

Big storms can be frightening and dangerous, and safety has to be your first priority. If your area has seen major problems, use caution. If you think your home has been structurally damaged or flooding risk remains, don’t go inside. Spending a few nights elsewhere is a small thing compared to your health.

Once the storm has passed, it’s important to assess the aftermath and start cleaning up. Below, we’ve provided information about the problems different storm systems can cause and how to keep your property, and yourself, safe in different situations.

Insurance Payouts

Coverage varies based on your area, the specifics of your policy, the extent of damage and other factors.

The faster you are to file a claim, the better chance you have for fair payouts. You could lose your chance if you don’t act with urgency.

Storm Damage Scenarios

  • Winter Storm Damage: Blizzards can cause collapsed roofs, break branches and power poles, and more.
  • Hail Aftermath: Major hail storms can cause shingle and siding damage, and that can mean roof leaks and compounding structural damage.
  • Damage from Flooding: Flood water can ruin foundations, ruin drywall, carpet and framing, lead to mold growth and cause other problems.
  • Wind-related Property Damage: This can rip off siding, shingles and even whole roofs, destroy glass, damage landscaping and electricity hookups and cause other problems.
  • Tropical Storm and Tornado Damage: Circular wind storms can completely destroy, including catastrophic damage to landscaping, siding and windows.
