The Scenario:

If you live in the Midwest, chances are you’ve dealt with severe weather. Whether it was forecasted, or the all-to-common “30% chance of isolated thunderstorms” (which, let’s be honest, is just used to cover their backsides because they have no idea), a big storm has rolled through and has left you with damage to your home.
