With Hurricane Katrina, one of the worst storms to ever hit the US mainland, leaving billions of dollars in property damage in her wake, many property owners are asking “What could I have done to prepare better before it hit?” And even those who did prepare as best they could are asking the now more important question, “How do I recover?”
For those looking for information on how to receive assistance in the wake of Katrina, DKI has created an informational Web site. The site assists property owners and managers in taking inventory of their situation after the storm has left and helps them identify sources of appropriate relief. The site features links to aid agencies and other resources that can deliver necessary aid.
For those fortunate enough to survive Katrina unscathed, but worried about the next storm that is sure to come, the Web site has numerous tips to assist property owners and managers on how to prepare weeks and months before a storm hits, what to do when a storm is identified as being on a path to affect one’s property, and how to protect one’s own personal safety.
In addition to the information on the Web site, DKI also has a 24 hour call center available to assist those property owners requiring emergency services and property reconstruction in the wake of storms like Katrina. That number is (888) 735-0800.
