Natural Disasters and Your Home
The number of natural disasters such as floods has increased in the past few years. In addition to the tragedy of the loss of life concerning these events is the fact that many homeowners have truly lost everything. A flood happens unexpectedly, and the damage caused by excessive winds and earth movement, such as hurricanes, can also wreck a home. The problem can be compounded if the disaster involves several types of damage at once, such as a water damage and breakage of objects due to shaking.
Insurance for Natural Disasters
Natural disasters or acts of God as they are referred to in the insurance industry require separate policies for coverage. You can find individual types of insurance in addition to Connecticut home insurance or you can opt for comprehensive coverage of several types of natural disasters.
