Pee Dee, South Carolina Residents Filing Hurricane Claims For Wind Damage

 Thursday, September 27, 2018


Many home and business owners in the Pee Dee are filing insurance claims to help pay for the damage that Hurricane Florence left behind. One of those businesses is Latta Feeding Farms. The owner, Jamie Deaver, says it wasn’t floodwaters that damaged his store, it was the wind. "The biggest thing was just severe winds. The shingle damage to siding damage was severe,” Deaver said. Deaver filed an insurance claim after the winds ripped some of the shingles off of his roof, which caused interior damage and halted business. "Loss of production and materials getting wet and damaged and having to swap our materials. A couple thousand dollars a day for probably over a week,” he said.
