Lightning Damage Claims
Need Help with Your Lightning Damage Insurance Claim?
Lightning strikes can be very destructive to your property, even if they are “near misses” that strike the ground near your home or office.
A Major Lightning Capital
Storm-prone states like Florida also run the high risk of lightning strikes, which can cause an estimated $30 million worth of damage every year to residents’ properties. Tampa Bay, Florida, where Five Star’s offices are located, experiences around 90 thunderstorms per year, peaking during the hot summer months. During these summer months, Tampa Bay, Florida counties can expect between four and six thousand lightning strikes per month, a staggering two hundred strikes per day!
Quick Facts About Lightning & Lightning Damage
Lightning strikes can cause damage to a wide range of personal property, including roof structures, appliances, furniture, and electronics. A lightning strike can be up to ten miles long, and is attracted to conductors like pipes, metal roofs, and trees. Lightning can also strike before a thunderstorm “officially” arrives, so even if there are storm clouds gathering far away, seek shelter immediately to maximize your safety. Because water is a great conductor of electricity, and human beings are mostly made of water, people can easily be struck by lightning if they
are standing near another conductor during a storm. This is why you’re always told to stay away from trees, pools, and large metal objects when a thunderstorm hits.
When a lightning storm hits, be sure to stay away from electronic devices and wall outlets. Unplug everything that isn’t absolutely essential from the wall, make sure any pets or animals are safely away from potential storm damage, and never use your swimming pool as long as you can see storm clouds. A good rule of thumb is to wait 30 minutes after a thunderstorm subsides before going outside. If you hear thunder 30 seconds or less after seeing lightning, seek shelter
