News briefs – July 22


FLOOD DAMAGE INSURANCE ALERT ISSUED – Ohio Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor has issued a consumer alert to encourage Ohioans to be aware of the risks and financial responsibility associated with flood damage to their home. Floods threaten to destroy homes from coast to coast – and they can happen anytime, anywhere and without warning.

“Flood damage is not usually covered under a standard homeowner’s or renter’s policy and I urge consumers to review their insurance policies to determine if this damage will be covered ,” said Taylor, also director of the Ohio Department of Insurance. “Additionally, if consumers find that they need flood insurance, they should secure coverage as soon as possible because these policies do not go into effect until 30 days after the purchase.”

SIT-DOWN DINNERS ENCOURAGED – Home Instead Senior Care is looking for more people to schedule more sit-down dinners with senior loved ones.

For every pledge taken at by July 31, the company will donate $1 to Meals on Wheels through July 31.
