Aftermath of storms in pictures; also, cellar flooding & insurance links


It’s been an incredible two days of rain, storms, flooding and tornado warnings here in New England. Yesterday, there was a confirmed tornado in Wolcott CT (see video) and the National Weather Service is investigating whether a tornado occurred in Revere today. (Update: Revere tornado confirmed – see a video of damage.)

Hopefully, your damage isn’t too bad but one thing seems apparent: many communities are suffering damage from flash floods. We note a lot of traffic to our blog posts about problems in the home – here are links if you need them: Water in the basement: What does insurance cover? and Does homeowners insurance cover a flooded basement?

Meanwhile, we’ve embedded some tweets with visuals of the damage below – see more photos of Revere damage as photos are posted on Twitter.
