State Farm announces the use of drones for future natural disasters. The insurance company has released a video of the testing of its Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Officials say, as the newest tool being tested for potential disaster response, this could become a great benefit during future disaster responses in Alabama. Earlier this year the company announced that it was the first insurer to be cleared by the F-A-A to test drones. State Farm has been training and testing unmanned aircraft for potential use during a response to natural disasters such as a hurricane or the more recent historic tornado outbreaks across Alabama.
