THE STORY:

hi, my name is jamey travis, my family and I have suffered almost a total loss of our home and its contents . On Sat Aug 13 the comite river started to rise and entered our home and would continue to rise another 4 feet. It was about 630 am when my wife noticed our front yard quickly being covered with water almost a 1 foot rise in 30 min. We grabbed what we could a change of clothes and left to stay with relatives. Two day later when the rains finally stopped our home has over 3 feet of standing water inside. Everything we owned was destroyed including 3 of our 4 autos. We are not located in a flood plain and aren't required to have flood insurance. I've lived in this area my entire life and have never seen a event like this one. Total destruction throughout my area. When we were able to return to our home water was still standing in our home about a inch deep. Everything that was exposed to the river water must be removed and thrown away. The sheet rock on the walls must be cut out and thrown away as well as all flooring. The studs have to be treated to prevent mold from growing all of our windows will have to be replaced as well. The list goes on and on of things that must be done before we can even think about rebuilding. I have filed a claim with fema but the max amount they will pay is 33000.00, but the average payout is only 7200.00. The cost to repair and replace everything we have lost will exceed 75000-100000, we plan on taking out a loan to cover everything but with having to pay my current home loan and this new home loan its going to be very hard. I sit here not wanting to place a request like this but i'm asking if you will help us a little and when i'm back on my feet it will be paid forward. Thank you Jamey, Tina, Ashley, Blake, Cade Travis 10270 south Ida Baton Rouge LA 70818
