But how likely or extensive can damage be to underground property? Here are two recent articles that indicate how serious and widespread the exposure can be, including the pollution exposure:
“Santa Rosa Fire Damage Extends Underground”
“Underground Power Lines and Wildfires”
While such claims are relatively rare, providing an endorsement option to customers could be a good idea, along with using policy forms that don’t exclude underground property.
Thanks to Cliff Treese at CIRMS for the Santa Rosa link.
