So sorry to hear of your plight, my friend. At least, you did not lose the house and did not have to evacuate.
I suppose communities want firearms seized from empty houses for fear of looters using them to loot even more or possibly rape, such as it happened in New Orleans.
The police in a disaster are not what you expect. They are as bad as the looters. Even the Prime Minister has objected to their behaviour.
Human nature will never change. What is their particular behaviour?
I can't imagine what you and your family are going thru…how terrible life can be when it suddenly bludgeons you taking away your tranquillity and economic security. Also I don't think many of you have any 'flood insurance'…
Do the best you can, my friend, and keep us posted as you can.
