Tips for filing home insurance claims | Business

In the last three weeks Western Pennsylvania has experienced two weather-related events that the insurance industry has described as “CAT” events. A catastrophic event is an event that happens every 20 or so years that results in a larger than usual number of claims. The two events we experienced were both wind-related.
