If you live in Columbus, Ohio you are well aware of the house explosion in Upper Arlington recently. For those of you that don’t know the story, the family was away on vacation when a gas leak caused their house to completely explode. The damage was so devastating that it completely leveled the family’s house and many houses surrounding have now been deemed uninhabitable. Many people are wondering if their insurance will cover explosion.

Good news. Explosion is a covered peril included in your common HO3 policy. Insurance should repair the damages caused by an explosion.
