Windstorm – May 21, 2022 FAQs

Q. Is my property or vehicle covered from the recent storm damage on May 21, 2022?
A. Please note that not all policies are equal. It’s important to check your coverage and limits first. In most cases, your home insurance policy will cover damage caused by perils such as wind or rainstorm including:
- losses caused by flying debris or fallen trees and/or branches.
- losses to your home and contents from water entering through openings suddenly caused by wind
- damage to vehicles from wind or water (if you have comprehensive coverage as part of your policy).
Q. What should I have ready when making a claim?
A. When it is safe to do so, take these steps to begin the insurance claims process, and always check your policy limits:
- Assess any damage, and if possible, assemble proofs of purchase, photos, and receipts.
- Keep damaged items unless they pose a health hazard.
- Keep notes and be as detailed as possible when documenting damage and providing information. Keep all receipts related to cleanup.
- If your home is uninhabitable due to a covered loss, the Additional Living Expense coverage will consider increased costs you incur if you’re temporarily unable to live at home. Retain all receipts such as hotel bills, and restaurant meals.
Q. My power went out during the storm and hasn’t returned. Will my insurance policy cover the food in my refrigerator and freezer that have spoiled?
A. Typically, in the event of a power outage, your insurance policy covers the contents up to a specified amount. Please check with your agent for what perils your policy covers and if it covers damage to spoiled food.
Your freezer and their contents may be covered (up to a specified limit) for damage related to food spoilage caused by an accidental power interruption, or as the result of a covered peril like a tree falling on your home’s roof and severing your power line.
