Fallen Trees and Home Insurance

Trees down on your property?  Are you asking yourself "Does my Home Insurance Cover Fallen Trees?" 

Last week areas of Massachusetts and elsewhere were hit by thunderstorms, severe winds and microbursts, according to The Boston Herald.   Weather.com states that a microburst is "a localized column of sinking air (downdraft) within a thunderstorm and is usually less than or equal to 2.5 miles in diameter. Microbursts can cause extensive damage at the surface, and in some instances, can be life-threatening."
