The remnants of Tropical Storm Cristobal impacted thousands of people in southern Wisconsin on Tuesday, June 9.

Thousands of folks were without power and some saw rain yesterday that seemed to come down in sheets. A flash flood watch was in effect until this morning.

If you have water damage, the Wisconsin Office of Commissioner of Insurance (OCI) has recommendations for steps in take and online resources to share. Please view their press release below.

And check your insurance policy. Most home insurance policies do not cover flooding or seepage through the foundation, which is usually covered under separate flood insurance policies. Give us a call at 1-800-279-4030 if you have any insurance questions.
