Storm damage can cause harm to your home, and it can occur anytime. Heavy rain with powerful winds can cause flooding or even roof damage.

Take Safety Precautions

Heavy rain and wind can create physical hazards on your property, such as a collapsed roof, window damage, collapsed walls or standing water in your home, basement or building. Once the moisture soaks into carpeting, furniture or building materials, it can cause mold growth.  Be cautious of broken glass, exposed nails and other sharp objects on the property. If you smell gas, shut off the main gas line. 

Take a Picture of the Damage

Only if it is safe to move around, use your camera or phone camera to photograph the damage so that you will have a record for your insurance company. This action will ensure that you are fully compensated.

Contact Your Insurance Company

Contact your insurance agent to notify them about the damages to your home as soon as possible. The company will send out an adjustor to determine the extent of the damage so that payment for repairs can be made.
