Home insurance companies say they were prepared for Hurricane Sandy, but the same may not be true for flood insurers who are feeling increased pressure as the storm caused more water damage than normally expected in such storms.
The biggest aftershock of Tuesday's East Coast earthquake might be that traditional homeowners' insurance won't pay for the damages.
Two liberal groups each filed lawsuits Wednesday against the town of Fremont, Neb., in order to put a stop to its new ordinance banning people from hiring illegal immigrants or renting homes to them.
Bob Hartwig, president and economist at the Insurance Information Institute, said insurance companies are deploying "armies of adjusters" to affected neighborhoods.
He said homeowners can prepare by surveying the damage, documenting it with "before" and "after" pictures, and making temporary repairs.
