SharknadoA sharknado attack likely would be covered under U.S. homeowners' insurance policies, Consumer Reports says.

Curious after the Syfy TV movie "Sharknado" took the Internet by storm last week, Consumer Reports asked the Insurance Information Institute what would happen from an insurance perspective if a giant tornado dumped thousands of sharks on a neighborhood.

"A tornado is a wind event," Mike Barry, vice president of media relations, was quoted as saying. A falling shark likely would be covered under homeowners insurance "as a falling object."

Car insurance, as long as it included comprehensive coverage, likely would cover any damage caused by a shark landing on a car or truck.

As for any limbs lost in an attack by a flying shark, that would fall under health insurance claims, Consumer Reports said Monday.

What to do with the dead sharks left in the aftermath? Consumer Reports suggests checking out the group's ratings for chainsaws, kitchen knives, freezers and top-rated grills.
