Tornado Recovery, Where Do You Start?

Emotions run high as communities assess the full extent of devastation caused over the weekend. About 40 tornadoes tore across the Midwest, including Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma, and Kansas, as well as a few down in Texas. Some reports show around a hundred tornadoes touched down over the tumultuous weekend. It’s clear there is much work ahead to recover from this disaster. But where do you start?

If this whirlwind of devastation affected you, then you most likely asked yourself that very question: Where do I start?

When you experience such a level of devastation that rips your entire life from its foundation and scatters it about, it becomes almost impossible to think straight. The flattened view of homes and memories before you is captioned by children’s confused cries as they search for their Wubbie or bicycle – the equivalent of an emotional tornado. Where do you find time to pick up the pieces of littered remnants of your home and everything within it?

Recovery & Claim Tips

Next Steps

The next steps become increasingly complicated and time consuming. The claims process can take 6 months to a year or longer. Do you have an additional 20 hours available to spend on a claim for the next 6 months to a year on top of your normal life? I know I don’t and most other people don’t either.

Are you prepared to tackle all that is required in the claims process?

Unlike the carrier adjuster, a public adjuster solely has your interests in mind. They can manage the additional 20 hours a week to handle your claim, reducing your burden. Public adjusters are experts in their field. They will advise and assist you throughout the entire claims process, eliminating those nagging questions and uncertainties you have right now.

Insurance Carrier Collaboration Expedited Claim Process

Million Oaks Condominium Association

Kenner, Louisiana
Hurricane Ida
August 2021


In the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Ida, the insurance carrier relied heavily on our expertise right from the start of the claim process. This collaboration showcased the mutual respect between the insurance carrier and our public adjusting team, all in the interest of expediting the claim for the policyholder. Recognizing the extensive damage, we assisted residents with their individual claims and coordinated both inspections and repairs for their units. Ultimately, we secured coverage up to the policy limits for the Condo Association and offered complimentary consultation services to residents, helping them recover their losses.
