Insurance coverage after a tornado

Posted on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012 at 7:23 pm    

Tornadoes are an extreme force of nature that can happen with very little notice and leave havoc in their wake. In many cases, families lose their homes and have other property destroyed as well.

If this does happen to you or your family, you will depend on the your insurance company to keep their end of the bargain so that you will receive an adequate payment for the damage done.

Tornado damage may fall underneath the category of ‘windstorm damage’ and typically recovers damages if you lose your home, personal property or other structures. The amount received in a tornado insurance claim will vary depending on what policy you may have, but it is important to understand your policy so that you do not get underpaid.
