Homeowners and Business Policies in the Wake of Ida
Part 1 of 2: From additional living expenses to lost income coverage, review what’s next as cleanup efforts are underway.
Hurricane Ida has moved through the country, leaving downed trees, flooded areas and other debris in its wake. And this is just the beginning of the story. Many have evacuated, and the storm left 1 million residents of Mississippi and Louisiana without power. Areas of New York have been flooded, and there has been flooding throughout the path of the storm. Central Park received 7.1 inches of rain, and Newark, New Jersey, received 8.4 inches.
Average temperatures in Louisiana and Mississippi range in the 80s and 90s, with heat indexes in the high 90s, which has caused the National Weather Service to issue heat advisories. While officials are trying to restore power as quickly as possible, they warn that it may take weeks for power to be restored. Generators are particularly helpful in providing temporary power and air conditioning. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has sent 200 generators to Louisiana and more are expected.
