The storms that hit South Carolina at the beginning of the week did some damage–$3.7 million worth. On Monday night and early Tuesday morning, high winds, rain, lightning and thunder pounded the state. So far, the South Carolina Insurance News Service reports nearly 1,500 insurance claims have been filed, resulting in approximately $3.7 million in damage. Mostly wind damage and large trees down were reported in Anderson, Columbia, Rock Hill and Spartanburg. While there were many automobile claims filed after the storm, the majority of the damage was to homes.
The Insurance News Service says to file a claim one should survey the damage, notify an agent, make temporary repairs with kept receipts, keep all damaged property and photograph that damage, and have their insurance policy number ready when filing a claim.
