January’s “bomb cyclone” brought heavy snow, ice, and bitter cold to most of the East Coast. Winter storm warnings were issued from Massachusetts to Florida, the latter of which issued a rare freeze warning for most of the state. In the days and weeks that followed, dangerously low temperatures were experienced in the mid-Atlantic and New England, with the epic winter freeze seemingly reluctant to release its grip on several states as temperatures were well below freezing for multiple days. With the temperatures in the single digits for most Northern states, it is no surprise that the arctic blast brought with it a slew of insurance claims related to freezing and bursting pipes.
