Rockport Hurricane Harvey Damage Claims
One of the regions hardest hit by the ravaging rain and wind from Hurricane Harvey was undoubtedly the Rockport and Port Aransas areas of the Texas coast. On August 25, 2017, weather forecasters assess that wind speeds as the hurricane made landfall in Rockport reached up to 115 miles per hour. Harvey was in fact the strongest hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Hurricane Rita more than 10 years ago.
It is estimated that over 70% of home damage brought about by Harvey are not properly covered in homeowner’s insurance policies. The hurricane caused billions of dollars in damages and pummeled the Texas coast with approximately four feet of rain before it moved on towards Victoria, Fulton, and eventually into Houston and beyond. When it finally ended its destruction, a significant portion of East, Central, and Coastal Texas found itself buried under more than 50 inches of rainfall.
