Gov. John Kasich has declared a state of emergency in 17 counties due to severe storms and heavy, persistent rains that occurred in much of Ohio in late February.
In response to Kasich’s declaration in Adams, Athens, Belmont, Brown, Clermont, Columbiana, Gallia, Hamilton, Hocking, Jackson, Jefferson, Lawrence, Meigs, Monroe, Muskingum, Scioto and Washington counties, the Ohio Department of Insurance (ODI) has also issued a bulletin to allow insureds in those counties to defer insurance premium payments and extend time constraints in which insureds must take certain actions. Read the entire bulletin here.
ODI’s bulletin applies to insureds, insured properties and claimants in the named counties, and is effective between March 7, 2018 and May 24, 2018.
