Meteors are Covered by Insurance

By now I'm sure all of you have seen the riveting footage of the meteor fireball that descended upon Russia and injured nearly 1000 people. If not, check out this video capture by the dash cam of a Chelyabinsk citizen.

In case you were wondering, Russians are known for having dash cams in an effort to dispel violence and road rage that runs rapid through their country. Read more on that here.

You are probably also wondering how insurance handles an event such as this. Afterall, it's not every day that a meteor stikes Earth and causes roofs to collapse, windows to break, shattered glass to injure unsuspecting folks and tremors to damage structures. Thankfully.

Rest assured though, a meteor strike is a covered event. Falling objects are covered and this meteor was certainly a falling object!
