We are cooking up Nettles sausage and grilled corn this Friday. We appreciate our customers and want to start off the Memorial Day weekend with some fun and fellowship. Swing by our office between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Come hungry. See you Friday.
Lightning damage is covered
The storm that raged over Columbia County late Monday night might safely be considered an epic lightning event. Few Columbia County-ans slept as lightning struck minute by minute throughout the night. As expected, we have received numerous lightning claims in our office over the last two days. Lightning is a “covered peril” under most property insurance policies, even basic peril policies.
We want to alert you to a little known provision of the Homeowner (HO-3) coverage form. Did you know that there is coverage for trees damaged by lightning? In fact, up to $500 is available per any one tree, shrub, plant or lawn located at your residence premises when damaged by lightning, fire, vandalism, theft and a few other perils. Tree damage from windstorm, however, is not covered.
If you are making a claim for lightning damage to your property, don’t forget to inspect your trees for damage; additional payments may be available to you. Call us at (386) 752-8660 if you would like to learn more.
