ADOPT A HOUSE INC wrote -
Our home is in Lindenhurst, south of Montauk Hwy. On the night of the hurricane, our home was flooded with 3 to 4 feet of water destroying the bottom floor and strong winds damaging the roof and upstairs bedroom. Like so many other families, we couldn't imagine the devastation... until we actually saw it with our own eyes a few days later when the water finally receded.
Our house was severely damaged and our insurance settlement has not come close to covering the cost of construction or replacement of contents in our home. Our struggles have been compounded by the mortgage company holding and not releasing insurance money needed to get our home fixed. We are currently displaced and living in Oceanside which is taking it's toll on our two children who miss their friends and classmates in Lindenhurst.
The house we are temporarily living in is sold and in contract so we need to be back in our home by May 1st. We are still in need of floors, carpeting, doors, trim, windows, paint, kitchen base cabinets, and removal of soil contamination, totalling approximately 34,000.00. Thank you for any and all help!
