Heavy Rain Causes Damage To Lynn Haven Community

By

Water Damage To Homes Over the July 4th weekend, residents of a Lynn Haven apartment complex suffered significant damage from the weekend’s storm front. The News Herald reported that the water damaged 53 apartments which contained 53 families, and in other areas like Havenwood, the water reached up to 20 inches and put many homeowners waist deep in rain water and sewage.

Residents of Lynn Haven were removed from their homes by police who transported them in the bucket of a bulldozer. The disaster shelter is where those affected have been staying with their families, but many were told their homes would not be returned to living conditions for at least 10 days, with no definitive timeline.

Tom Williams, the emergency disaster service director, stated they were mainly helping people without flood insurance with cleaning and mold removal supplies. “We are just trying to help everyone we can,” Williams explained to the News Herald. The Building Department officials were accompanied by FEMA agents to assess the damage which totaled 150 homes and apartments that had a couple of inches up to the three-feet of water.

In order to prevent such devastating damage, Wilson mentions how important it is to have flood insurance. “You can buy all the sandbags and duct tape you want to, but the number one protection against this is flood insurance.”
