Home Vibrations

New York, NY: (Jan-07-08) John and Annette Ferranti, a Brooklyn couple, brought a lawsuit against Allstate Insurance Co., alleging that their home was badly damaged by vibrations caused by an Air France Concorde jet. Records show that the Ferrantis sued after Allstate refused to pay for damage to their 12-room concrete and steel house created by vibrations from an Air France Concorde as it took off from John F. Kennedy airport on July 21, 2002. The couple stated that the supersonic jet struggled to gain altitude, flew low over Jamaica Bay, and buzzed the areas near their home where other residents complained about shaking foundations and cracking plaster. As part of a settlement reached, Allstate Insurance Co. has agreed to pay $995,000 to the couple, resolving allegations. [USA TODAY: HOME INSURANCE]
