BALTIMORE (WMAR) -
After all of the storm damage from Friday night, there are plenty of people that will be filing insurance claims.
State Farm Insurance says there are three things you should keep in mind.
1. Stay Safe - Safety is the first priority. Stay away from down-power lines and unstable debris. Only proceed with the next steps if it is safe to do so.
2. Secure your home - You may complete temporary repairs to prevent further damage to your home:
3. Document your loss - Your insurer will require you to document any damage to your property and provide receipts for recovery-related expenses. Be sure to save all receipts for home repairs, vehicle towing and repairs, temporary housing, meals, and other living expenses.
