Home and business policyholders dealing with wind damage insurance claims may find themselves battling their insurer on whether a named storm deductible applies due to Hurricane Ian or just a wind deductible applied due to a tornado that occurred before the hurricane. If wind damage existed before the September 28, 2023 Hurricane occurrence, be sure to tell your insurer.
On January 18th, 2022, National Weather Service has updated the track for an EF2 tornado that hit Lee County, and an additional tornado was confirmed in Charlotte County.
The track is confirmed to be 7.9 miles and lasted for 16 minutes. The tornado that caused extensive damage in Iona also went through Gulf Harbour and crossed the Cape Coral Bridge. In all, there were five tornados.
