Hurricane Fay hits my sister

Got a call from my Mom, and hurricane Fay hit my sister’s place, totally flooding her place and destroying what she had. She has family of her husband’s she’s with staying with, but it looks like she won’t be able to move back into the house. The funny thing is, she tried to get flood insurance last year and was denied because she was told it’s in a flood zone. She’d been planning on moving as she was renting, and the home was facing foreclosure anyway. Still, they managed to get out with the clothes on their backs and not much else. I can’t get through on the phones so don’t know much more than what my Mom said; so please keep her in your thoughts if you would.

  1. Thanks everyone. It’s not as bad as it could be for them, but they were in the process of starting over after some hard times and now they have to do it again.

    It’s frustrating not being able to do anything for them right now.

  2. I am very sorry to hear about your sister. I lost my home to a flood 2 years ago and had to rebuild it from scratch. I know first-hand how painful this is. I now have a Web site at where I am posting advice on how to deal with disaster recovery, rebuild your home, etc. I hope it can help your family some how.

  3. Thank you very much harvardtohardhat. I appreciate the thoughts and the link. I will certainly utilize the information there. Thanks again!
