I am truly sorry to hear that. Hopefully, family, friends, neighbors, and insurance companies are able to help you through this.

I saw a bit on the news but I did not see detailed reports. Our typical media.

It is great to hear of the American spirit in your area.

Is there anyway we can help?

In all honesty; I really don't know what is or isn't being set up as I just got power about midnight last night.

Everybody I talked to is waiting on insurance, and are stable.
Most of us has been clearing trees for roadways, removing trees from roofs, shuttling fuel, and stuff like that so power company workers can make it thru, and to all neighborhoods.
I was treed-in most of Saturday morning.

A family can be placed temporarily; but, when it comes to school/life/normalness, a displaced family has no choice but to be patient and wait.
2020 has already been the most ridiculous turn of events people has ever seen.

Truly sad. Hopefully there are numerous churches and social services to help with those types of issues and stress. Going through that once is awful. Twice in a year is tragic.

Thanks!

I don't do the gofundme stuff...what I will do is find out exactly where to send donations, not to me, but them, and I am sure they will have to get a PO box since they can no longer live there.

I'll make contact privately, and not here that can be viewed publically.

Another thing to visualize;
imagine a hurricane comes in and damages your home, roof, storage, etc...
Insurance steps in, does a great job of paying so you can order materials,
...then...
materials finally make it to you home, then you finally find a legit crew to do your repairs, and the crew can finally make it to start your repairs.







Then another hurricane comes and blows all your materials away, and damages your home more.
