Storm Insurance Gives Much Needed Peace of Mind

August 31, 2005 – Posted at 5:34 p.m. CDT

JONESBORO, AR -- Can you imagine losing all of your most valued possessions? This is the depressing reality for millions whose lives have been torn apart by hurricane Katrina. Residents are now left to lean on their insurance policies.

“Insurance is a wonderful thing when you go through a disaster and you have no where to go. It's good backup. You need insurance,” said Christine Stackhouse, a Louisiana storm victim, as she was filing a claim with a local insurance agent.

Hurricanes aren’t a problem for residents of Region 8, however, tornadoes and flooding are. When deciding what kind of coverage is right for you, local State Farm Insurance Agent Ben Ford said you should ask yourself a couple of questions, “Are you in a flood zone? Also, if there were to be a major catastrophe, would I be covered depending on what that catastrophe would be?”

Ford also encourages you to talk with your insurance agent to help decide what type of coverage is best for your family.
