You have to be careful what you say to an insurance company. They are waiting for you to slip up and say something that will void or defeat your coverage for hurricane damage.
If you tell an insurance company that water entered your house by flowing into the home from across the ground, you will not have insurance coverage for windstorm damage. Water moving across the ground and entering your house will be considered "flooding" and therefore, will not be covered by hurricane, storm or windstorm damage.
You should answer that the damage in your home is from the hurricane and that the wind and storm moved the water into the home. Much of your damage will be covered at that point, but any reference to water that rises up or moves across the ground and enters the house is considered "flood" waters.
If you describe the water entering your home, even if some of it is NOT from the flood, you will get nothing but denial of your claim.
So the best course is to not make guesses and have someone with experience to inspect the damage and determine how water entered the home.
