A major storm wreaked havoc on our neighborhood.
My neighbors and I received 12 in of rain over a three-day period.
The banks of the river rose overnight and half of the streets in our town were flooded. People were using their canoe in the street to travel from one place to another. It was absolutely crazy and surreal and it was probably one of the most dangerous storms that we have ever seen in this area. After the storm was over, my wife and I assessed all of the damage to our home and our yard. We had debris all over the place and most of the living room was destroyed when a tree fell in the yard. The tree took out the living room wall, television, all of our pictures, and the HVAC unit. My wife and I were totally stressed out and depressed, but our insurance company came to the rescue and helped us get through the process quickly and easily. The insurance company covered all of the damages to the house and our HVAC unit. A couple of neighbors had damage as well, but we were the only house with a tree in our living room. By the time we were finished with all of the storm damage, we replaced all of the HVAC unit and 90% of the living room. I hope we don’t see another storm like that in my lifetime. It was absolutely one of the scariest and most horrifying experiences of my life. I can’t imagine how people live in tropical locations with storms every week.
