  • Keeping Children Safe after a Hurricane

    After the storms, there are still many hazards to be mindful of as a result of the extensive damage left in its wake. Flooding is the most common natural disaster in the U.S., and causes billions of dollars in damage each year for families and businesses. It is important for parents and guardians to follow the recommendations below in order to keep their children safe and at ease through the wait and associated cleanup.

  • Don’t wait. Clean up as soon possible.

    You do not need to wait for an insurance adjuster or FEMA inspector to start cleaning your flood damaged home.

    Take photos or videos of the outside and inside of the building, including damaged personal property, and label them by room before you remove anything.

    After taking photos, immediately throw away items that pose a health risk from floodwaters, such as perishable food, clothing, cusions and pillows.

    If you need help cleaning up your flood-damaged home, call 844-965-1386


    After a flood, building back homes the same way they were damaged could cause serious issues for the owners of those homes and their neighborhoods. Homes in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) are required to have flood insurance if they have a federally backed mortgage. Homes below the Base Flood Elevation (BFE) face premium increases for their flood insurance premiums up to full risk rates.
