FEMA offering free rebuilding consultations to Isaac victims
If your home, business or both sustained damage from Hurricane Isaac, it’s likely you’d prefer to repair it to withstand that kind of storm if and when one hits again.
From Wednesday until Monday, FEMA will have mitigation specialists at Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse stores in Pascagoula, Flowood and Meridian. Consultations are free and are available on a walk-in basis. They will cater to home and business owners who will perform the repairs and rebuilds themselves, and to contractors.
FEMA’s mitigation specialists will have tips on reinforcing structures against high winds via retrofitting, protecting electrical systems and appliances from floodwaters, and eliminating mold and mildew. Consultations will be available Monday through Saturday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sundays 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
