Catastrophic Weather Events
In the Midwest, we are no stranger to the havoc and devastation the weather can bring. The Joplin
tornado of 2011 cost many lives and many more their homes and belongings.
Cameron Mutual Insurance Company answered the call to Joplin, with adjusters and other field
personnel on the scene within 24 hours. Using GPS systems to locate our insureds homes where there
were no street signs or landmarks remaining, Cameron's Claims department attended to the immediate
and subsequent needs of its insureds.
When catastrophe hits, our Claims personnel make exceptional efforts to ensure policyholders are
contacted, their immediate needs are met, and policy provisions are made.
