Local agencies in the Northeastern region say they saw cases of business interruption claims following the unusual, freak snowstorm that swept through the area last month. Many claims came from local restaurants and diners whose refrigerated foods went bad and couldn’t serve their customers during power outages. “Driving around, we saw a lot of trees down, majority of which have not been covered because they have not hit anything. Some hit porches and fences but nothing major with regard to the homeowners side,” Joseph Merullo, president at Vreeland Insurance Agency in Rockaway, N.J., told Insurance Journal.
