Freezing rain and ice accumulation found overnight Tuesday and early Wednesday brought ice damage to the Hill Country and northern reaches of Bexar County.
Snapped tree branches, uprooted trees, and downed power lines were found, causing almost 40,000 CPS outages early Wednesday morning.
If fallen tree limbs end up causing damage to your house or your vehicle, you might be wondering if insurance will cover repairs.
Here’s the latest information on what to do next, posted by the texas.gov/blog/fallen-tree-branches-and-insurance.html”>Texas Department of Insurance:
Take pictures of any damage before making repairs
After any temporary repairs are completed, contact your insurance agent or company
Homeowner policies should cover materials and labor needed to make those repairs
Be sure to save your receipts for reimbursement
If a branch falls on your vehicle, auto policies will pay for damages if you have comprehensive coverage
If you happen to have any other questions regarding this process, you can call the Texas Department of Insurance’s helpline: 800-252-3439.
