Insurance agent advises patience with claims
A tree lies across the back of home on Shadowmoor Circle, following the June 17 storm in Thomson.
The June 17 storm that swept through McDuffie County downed trees, with some falling through roofs or coming through windows, leaving homes and property damaged.
Homeowners are now beginning to inform their insurance companies of the damage and file claims.
“A claim is nothing more than a request from an insurance company to compensate a first or third party for some damages to their property,” said Greg Derry, an agent with Joesbury Insurance Agency in Thomson.
