Along with memories and furniture, major appliances like you furnace and water heater could have been damaged if there was more than 12 inches of water in your home. Some of you replaced your furnace, water heater or other damaged equipment while others chose to keep their current appliances against the advice of their technician or plumber. Don't ignore this opportunity, you can still decide to make your home safe again.

"According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), disaster recovery centers offer long-term opportunities for disaster survivors to reach out to FEMA, the U.S. Small Business Administration and other organizations. Those who suffered damage can register for assistance, discuss types of disaster assistance programs with specialists, receive the status of their existing application and obtain other information." Those who suffered damages have the opportunity to receive up to $32,000 for home repairs from FEMA.
