It depends. A tornado can cause property damage in a matter of seconds, but in a large, slow moving tornado, structures can be exposed to damging winds for several minutes. A very violent tornado can completely obliterate a well built house in under 3 seconds.
The main damaging force in a tornado is the wind. These winds carryenough force to tear away or push over parts of structures. In somecases structures may be completely blown away. Debris carried bythe winds can cause additional damage on impact.
It depends on the tornado and where it occurs. Weak tornadoes (EF0-EF1) which inflict minor to moderate damage typically cause a few thousand to a few hundred thousand dollars in damage. Stronger tornadoes (EF2-EF3) often have damage totals in the millions of dollars. Some of the worst tornadoes… (typically EF4 or EF5) can have damage in the hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars. Some tornadoes stay in open fields and don't cause any damage.

A rotten tree on the city property fell onto my car which was parked in my driveway on my landlord's property who is liable for the damage?
Nobody is liable for an act of nature. Your own comprehensive auto insurance would provide coverage for damage to your vehicle from an act of nature.
It depends on what type of coverage you are looking for. If your dog chews up your own property, probably not.

However, if your dog chews up someone else's stuff, it probably wi…ll cover it. In Wisconsin, there are two types of coverages available that might provide coverage: damage to property of others, which applies regardless of whether or not you are liable for the damage (although in this case, you would be), and personal liability coverage which only applies in instances where the damage is your fault. Usually the damage to property of others coverage is limited to about $500. The personal liability coverage is usually a minimum of $100,000, but is often much higher. ( Full Answer )
As a general rule, you are responsible for any damage to your property. However, if your landlord knew of problems with the ceiling but did not get them fixed promptly, he may be responsible for the damage to your property.

Finally, since landlord-tenant laws vary from state to state, your state may have a specific law that holds your landlord responsible for the damage. You should immediately see a tenant's rights agency or landlord-tenant attorney who can review your specific situation. ( Full Answer )

Good question. I am an agent in Virginia, so my answers only apply to VA policies. But, here's a start. I'm assuming you had a valid policy in place when the occurrence happened. Insurance has lots of Grey areas. So, your insurance company is the best to contact for a good answer. But, if your items… were stolen at the time of eviction, you will most likely need a police report and then submit the claim. It would most likely be paid minus the deductible. As far as damaged items, it really depends on the policy and could very easily go either way. I suggest you contact your insurance agency/company for a more definitive answer. ( Full Answer )
