APCIA Offers Recovery Advice and Insurance Information
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A deadly tornado went through Middle Tennessee and touched down in Nashville last night. The storm system produced significant damage and as residents and businessowners begin the recovery process, the American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA) urges those impacted to work closely with their insurance company.
“Our thoughts are with those who have been impacted by this recent round of violent weather,” said Hilary Segura, counsel, state government relations for APCIA. “Anyone who experienced damage should contact their insurance company or agent to get the recovery process started. Insurers plan for severe weather and are prepared to immediately assist policyholders.”
The Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance is establishing mobile claims units with insurance carriers to assist consumers with their insurance claims. The three locations being established this morning are:
222 25th Ave N
Nashville, TN 37203
Wilson Co. EMA
110 Oak St.
Lebanon, TN 37087

Yesterday’s tornado activity highlights the importance of homeowners, renters and businessowners always being prepared. Because storms this time of year can strike quickly and with little warning, advance preparation is essential. In addition to keeping an emergency supply kit handy and being prepared to take cover, being ready also includes having the proper insurance coverage for homes, apartments, and businesses.
APCIA offers resources with vital information for those impacted by severe weather, as well as preparedness tips for those living in tornado-prone areas.
