Okay, so we certainly don’t want to scare you by the title, but let’s be honest here, there’s been so many instances of sinkholes in the news recently, that we can’t help but discuss them! Now, luckily for us in the North East region of the United States, sink holes aren’t really an issue.  But the same can’t be said for our neighbors in the South and Mid West.

Just last week, a whole hotel owned by the Disney resort in Florida was swallowed up by a massive sinkhole! Luckily, no one was injured, thanks to some great heads up tactics by a security guard, who received reports of sounds of popping glass in the windows, and knew immediately what that meant (I’m not sure what it means, either, we’re just happy he did!).

When it comes to your home, threats like sinkholes are pretty scary, but there are ways through your  CT homeowners insurance policy to make sure that if, on the off chance one happens in Connecticut, you’ll have coverage. The reason for this is because sink holes and the damage caused from them are not covered on standard home insurance policies, just like floods and earthquakes. While rare, they do occur, and the affects to your home could be devastating.

So now that you know, inquire about some coverage  to ensure that you’re fully protected from whatever Mother Nature decides to throw your way.  Any further questions about sinkholes, give Paradiso Insurance a call!
