Houston was recently hit by severe storms and flooding. Many homes along the bayous that give the city its nickname were inundated with many feet of water. Recovering from such a catastrophe is difficult and can be time consuming. As part of that process, victims of flood or storm losses must file claims with their insurance company. The claims process involves the insurance company sending an adjuster and determining the size of the insured's loss. Insureds can protect themselves by documenting their loss themselves with pictures and videos.
