Damage to Church Property
If the storm damages your church, photograph or video these areas and take all necessary measures to prevent further damage to the structures by making temporary repairs. Keep all receipts for these repairs so they can be provided to the field adjuster, along with visual documentation of the damage.
Contact the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) at 800-638-6620 to file a flood insurance claim. Direct other types of claims to your insurance agent.
