Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Jefferson County, Crystal S. Cronk, Judge.  AFFIRMED IN PART, REVERSED IN PART, AND REMANDED.  Heard by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (15 pages)

            Farm Bureau Property & Casualty Insurance Company appeals a district court judgment in favor of Unkrich Ag, Inc., Monty Unkrich, and Stacy Unkrich (collectively “the Unkriches”).  OPINION HOLDS: Substantial evidence supports a finding that equipment was damaged by a power surge at the Unkriches’ property but does not support a finding the electrical systems were damaged by a power surge.  We also modify the court’s award for loss-of-income damages to policy limits.  We affirm in part, reverse in part, and remand for a recalculation of damages.
