If you are outside of the disaster zone and would like to make a donation to the relief efforts, you can do so through the Danos Foundation. Please indicate Hurricane Ida in the description area. Employees may donate via payroll deduction by emailing email@example.com.
Any homeowner, renter, or auto insurance you possess will be primary to recovery from FEMA or other federal assistance.
- Where possible, take whatever reasonable measures there are available to prevent further damage to your personal property after the storm passes.
- Call your insurance agent immediately to start the claim process. Don’t wait to assess damage. If you have excess insurance, or umbrella coverage, then be sure to ask your agent to notify your excess carrier.
- Separate the damaged and undamaged things in your home right away. If possible, do not destroy the damaged items until your claims adjuster has had an opportunity to inspect.
- Take close-up photographs of damaged rooms, furnishings, personal property (including automobiles), etc., especially for those damaged items you cannot retain until your claims adjuster inspects.
- Prepare an inventory of the damaged contents in your home.
- Record serial and model numbers of appliances and household equipment.
- If you have prior pictures of your home, gather those to document your losses. Remember, relatives and friends may have taken photos of holidays, birthdays, etc. in your home.
- Save receipts for things like lodging that will document your living expenses while you were out of your home.
- Save receipts from repair, replacement or clean-up costs. Also, include receipts for rented equipment and contract labor.
