Help keep the neighborhood safe during storm cleanup

Precinct 5 Constables have requested resident help to run-off and help discourage scavengers from piles of debris at flooded homes. 

Many residents have begin to place damaged items at the curb and others have begun to scour those piles for things they may want. 
Not only do they cause a traffic issue but  there are also safety issues. 

Additionally, you might need to hold on to these items for insurance adjusters if you have not FULLY documented losses with photographs. 

DO NOT CONFRONT SOMEONE AGGRESSIVELY OR PUT YOURSELVES IN DANGER and Contact Constable at 281.463.6666 if assistance is needed

 

Information about Insurance Claims

In the spirit of keeping you as informed as possible, we wanted to send an email regarding House Bill 1774. This bill, which goes into effect September 1, 2017 is designed to discourage frivolous lawsuits stemming from weather related insurance claims. The law limits the ability for homeowners to hold their insurance company accountable for wrongfully denied, underpaid, or when claims are not paid out in a timely manner.

The single-most important thing you can do is to file your claim by Thursday, August 31, 2017.  You can file a claim even if you have not returned to your home.  It is important that you file the claim, and then when you can safely do so, return to your home to begin the documentation and recovery process.

A few reminders:

Document and photograph everything. Serial numbers, books, anything touched by water should be logged and photographed.

Call 3-1-1 and let them know you were flooded.

For now, our office remains closed.

We will do our best to replay as quickly as we can.

We will be in touch via email and our Facebook page with updates to office hours or additional information.

2017 Home Elevation Grants

The City of Houston, in partnership with the Texas Water Development Board, will submit a grant application on behalf of interested homeowners to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Grant.  This grant will request funds for elevation of flood-prone homes.

Who Is Eligible?

Homeowners must have flood insurance from FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program. The flood insurance must be effective at the time the grant application is submitted and be maintained throughout the grant process. The cost to raise your home must be less than the estimated amount of future flood claim payments.
