Thankfully, damage to the house seems to be confined to the exterior - at least their homeowners policy should pay up - and it'll be alot quicker than FEMA disbursements ! But then there's always the deductible ... Sincerely I wish these people better luck. And I hope they find the person(s) responsible for either accidently or intentionally causing this incident.....
