Only a couple weeks after Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, Hurricane Irma has devastated Florida this past weekend. There is no denying that homes all over the region are going to sustain damage, including flood damage from each hurricane’s harsh rain.
If your home has been affected by flood, or you know a loved one that has experienced flooding, there are some options available to help you as you restore your life and property.

These are the first steps towards making sure that you are ready to address any issues with your mortgage following a natural disaster. You can also contact FEMA at https://www.fema.gov/individual-disaster-assistance. They provide assistance to homeowners that have been hit with a natural disaster.
Depending on the damage, you may receive assistance in the form of a low interest loan or a grant. These payments are not guaranteed, either, but can help provide some relief from hurricane damaged properties.
