Resources for Hurricane Ida
In the aftermath of Hurricane Ida’s historic landfall on the Gulf Coast, and the subsequent destruction in several states in the south and along the Eastern seaboard, damage to life and property is still being assessed.
Hundreds of thousands of Louisiana residents are still without power, hampering rescue and recovery and endangering the health and welfare of the local population, including hospitals crowded with COVID-19 patients.
New York City subway and rail systems have been halted due to flooding, and public transportation and infrastructure has been impacted up and down the East Coast. Tornado damage and record flooding have been reported in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York and New England.
Blank Rome’s interdisciplinary Severe Weather Emergency Recovery Team (“SWERT”) has developed the following resources for those in the path of the storm, or with business interests in the affected regions, which we encourage you to share with your contacts via e-mail and/or social media:
- Early Recovery Checklist for FEMA and Other Related Emergency Services for Individuals and Businesses
- Insurance Checklist for Individuals in the Event of Hurricane Losses on the Gulf Coast
- Insurance Checklist for Individuals in the Event of Hurricane Losses on the Eastern Seaboard
Our thoughts are with those in the path of the storm, and our SWERT team stands ready to provide assistance on FEMA and insurance issues to our clients and businesses who are impacted by these events. Please reach out to us if we can be of assistance.
