This forensic meteorologist thinks insurers can/should enforce a hurricane deductible in Sandy claims:
“Sandy did indeed have “hurricane-force” winds when it made landfall. The National Hurricane Center issued an advisory update at 8:00 p.m. EDT on Monday, October 29, 2012 stating “Surface…Radar…And Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter Aircraft Data Indicate That Post-Tropical Cyclone Sandy Made Landfall Near Atlantic City New Jersey Around 8:00 PM EDT…0000 UTC…With Maximum Sustained Winds of 80 MPH”
Huge money involved, since home values are so high here; $500K is common – hence a $10K deductible vs., say, $500.
