Know What Your Insurance Covers When a Hurricane Strikes
Preparing for Storm Includes Home Inventory, Policy Review
With forecasts predicting torrential rain, high winds, and in some places heavy snow to hit Maryland in the coming days, the Maryland Insurance Administration urges residents to prepare before Hurricane Sandy strikes. Homeowners and renters alike should review their policies to see which kinds of damage are covered and which are not. In addition, taking an inventory of your home now may ease your claims-filing process later.
Your insurance agent can help to explain specifically what is covered by your policy and what is not. The Maryland Insurance Administration offers guides and general information about insurance coverage on its website and on www.Facebook.com/MdInsuranceAdmin.
For more information on how to prepare for Hurricane Sandy, visit Insurance Preparedness for Natural Disasters on the Maryland Insurance Administration's website.
