Insurance helps policyholders to recover from the unexpected and there may be nothing more unexpected than a tornado. They dramatically disrupt communities by destroying schools, homes and businesses. In 2014, State Farm paid more than $870 million for claims as a result of tornado and high wind claims. That’s a decrease from the nearly $1.3 billion the insurer paid for tornado and wind claims in 2013.
