BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) - State Farm says the Federal Aviation Administration has approved the home and car insurer’s testing of aerial drones.

The Bloomington, Illinois-based insurance provider says it may use drones to look at roof damage in the claims process or respond to natural disasters.

The Chicago Tribune (https://trib.in/1EwxUjs ) reports test flights will take place at private sites in the Bloomington area at first. State Farm says tests could eventually happen in “real-world scenarios.”
