The main need after a flood if flood insurance. I understand that up to 80% of the damaged houses carried no flood insurance. For those of you who did not by flood insurance, buy it as soon as possible. Also file claims for each flood event. A friend of mine lives on a flood plane along with several other homes. Fema offered to raise her house to a level above that of any expected floods or buy it outright. They had filed claims on 3 earlier floods. A neighbor down hill from her had never filed a claim and did not get the offer to raise her house for 2 years.
All of the suggestions in this article look like they are exactly what steps you need to take after a flood.
These are very valuable tips for the homeowners in Texas who suffer home damage and loss. I only hope they can get this message through someone else if they do not have any power to access them. This list is worth printing and putting in preparation documents for yourself or to help others in the future. Thanks, Carolyn!
