Post-mortem upgrade: Hurricane Michael now Category 5 storm

Apr 19, 2019

According to a recent report by the Sun Sentinel, weather forecasters upgraded Hurricane Michael from a Category 4 storm to a Category 5. This makes the storm the fourth hurricane on record to hit the United States as a Category 5.

After National Hurricane Center scientists conducted a detailed post-storm analysis for Hurricane Michael, they concluded that the storm’s estimated intensity at landfall was actually 5 mph faster than last year’s estimate.

While many have satisfactorily settled their Hurricane Michael insurance claims and made their repairs, many thousands have found that their initial insurance claim settlement was not adequate to rebuild.  Some discovered additional damage that wasn’t apparent earlier.

Insurance Litigation Group has a local Panhandle Hurricane Dispute Resolution office and a team of highly experienced claims consultants and insurance attorneys ready to inspect your property, review your insurance policy and to either reopen an older claim or help file a supplemental Hurricane Michael damage claim.

Don’t accept anything less than a fair settlement that will help your family get back on their feet with a clean, safe home to live.
