- Parts of the roof ripped off
- Houses torn down
- Automobiles thrown through the air

- Removal of walls
Depending on the intensity of the tornado, you may be facing large bills for the repairs needed to your property. This is when your insurance company is supposed to come in and help you move past this event. Not only are insurance companies supposed to assist you with the repair bills, but also for your living expenses until you are able to move back home. All too often, insurance companies fight against paying for the full coverage or any coverage at all. Do not accept a settlement less than you are owed through your policy.
