Filed my first insurance claim today

Well i filed my first claim ever on my auto policy today. 14 years of paying it and we will see how it pays off soon.
Well technically i filed 2 of them today. For those that don't know. I live in sw Oklahoma city on the Moore ok border. Monday afternoon i made a decission to drive into the path of a nasty f5 tornado to get my son out of its path. I was about a half mile in front of it when i loaded the kid in and got the hell out of its way. When i got around to the back side of it i got pelted with some nasty golf to baseball size hail. She held up good though.

My wife on the other hand decided a 7-11 would be a good place to hide. She quickly changed he mind and left just prior to the tornado hitting it. It was a good choice since nothing is left of it.
Luckily our house was missed by .5 miles we are all ok. Took some battle damage to the 350. My wife's new 2013 optima is a strange deal. Probobly 30 dents on the hood and one above the side window but not anywhere else. Its really strange.

This was my first tornado. They are strange. It demolished a bowling ally, but one lane had all 10 pins upright. It wipes a huge brick building off its foundation but 10yards away is a plywood shed untouched.

Anyway. Hug you families pets cars....what ever is in your life. It can all be taken in a breath. I never would have thought I'd go to work and before i got home my wife kid and home could have come a few yards away from being taken. We all have issues. Be it work, money,car,family. But really take a step back and realize how blessed everyone of us are.

Glad you and the family are good! I'm originally from Joplin Missouri and still have alot of family that lives there. My niece lost her home and both cars. Tornados can be devastating! Be patient with your insurance agent lol.

It's great to know you, your kid, and your wife are ok. I heard about the tornado and the force it had.

Took a good drive thru the area today. Strange sights. A whole house is gone. One wall laying flat with every pictures still hanging on the wall. Or a house gone but the small wood shed is the back yard is in touched.


As far as the truck goes. It may be worse than i thought. The more i look the more damage i find. And i know they don't like doing pdr on older thicker metal. Might end up "totaled"
My apt. Is the 5th so time will tell
