What you need to know about homeowners insurance coverage
It’s not often that a homeowner is in danger of losing their home to the weather.
But that’s exactly what happened to one man in the small town of Whitefish, Montana, on Friday when a storm moved in from the north.
The storm caused some damage to the Whitefish Homeowners Association building.
But it also left a large swath of the town uninhabitable.
“It was like a big, gaping hole, and it was totally destroyed,” said John Foy, the president of the Whitefoy Homeowners Associations.
“The people who lived there were completely wiped out.”
“I’m a little bit shaken up,” said Mike Smith, the mayor of Whitefay.
“I just thought it was so sad, especially in a town that is very close to the border.
The damage to Whitefy’s historic building, which was built in the late 1800s, was the first time in decades that a storm had moved in that was capable of knocking down an entire house. “
But it was really good that we had our structure back up, and I just think everybody’s just grateful that we’re alive and well.”
The damage to Whitefy’s historic building, which was built in the late 1800s, was the first time in decades that a storm had moved in that was capable of knocking down an entire house.
The home’s main tenant, the Whitefur, is one of the oldest still standing in the area.
It is estimated that there are about 200 people in Whitefoe’s town of 4,500.
The damage left behind is estimated to be about $100,000.
The association said it will repair the damage and reopen to business as normal next week.
The Whitefur Homeowners association says it will reopen to normal operations on Monday, but that will be a big change for residents and tourists alike.
“We’ll be open for business as usual, but there will be an adjustment period because of the structural damage,” said Jim Brown, the association’s president.
“There’s no way to rebuild it, so we’ll have to take it apart, which is going to be a lot of work, and then it’ll be back up for business.”
The Whitefoys have lived in Whitefish for about 60 years, but the historic home is a unique piece of property.
“This is a very special building and this is a special community,” Smith said.
And so, in some ways, when you think about it, it’s a very beautiful piece of history.”
