Contractors are also going to be swamped.

Is the father in law capable of dealing with a flooded house on his own? That means getting any wet insulation and sheet rock out before it get moldy.

Florida laws prohibit any price gouging in times of natural disasters. That means there'll be a run on blue tarps to put on roofs. Often there will be a lack of plywood, shingles, sheet rock, insulation and other building supplies--and the labor to install it. Factories don't up production temporarily if there's no monetary reward to increase supplies.

I saw blue tarps on roofs 2 years after the last hurricane hit Pensacola.

Doubt he'll get a check for anything more then what was lost, ins. companies don't just go around handing money out.

The road by the Spanish fort in St. Augustine was underwater by a few feet. The old town area surely got flooded. Sucks.

The water wasn't as bad as projected. I live right in the heart of it and while my dock did go under my house never flooded. Jax beach was open today and business were opened. The city, our Mayor, and our governor were really prepared and are doing a great job. 24hrs ago I had 6ft of water in the road and now my street looks like nothing happened. There's electric trucks and tree trucks everywhere. They were Fixing power lines and cleaning up debri at 10:00 last night. I know some people got flooded but no where near what we thought we were going to get. Our dunes saved a lot of the beach as well. I have friends that live on 2nd street and they never saw water. There a lot more damage from down trees than flood in my opinion and I would bet in the next 3 weeks it won't look like anything happened. Like I said our elected officials were actually on there A game and were extremely prepared. Things are happening quick. Also some houses flooded in my moms neighborhood and today when I went through there people already had adjusters at there homes and contractors were working fast. It's quit amazing and we are blessed it wasn't as bad as projected.

I just got back from my girlfriends house in Treasure beach. A moble home on a canal she rents. Water rose about a half foot above the doors...All carpet wet, floors already sagging. She will be moving out...question is if the owner will repair or demolish the house. It's an older mobile house he bought this year with plans to rent for 5 years, then tear it down and build his retirement home. I guess you weigh the repair cost vs 5 years rental.

Will FEMA be involved in these cases? Are they provisions to help renters or just owners?

BTW, very little wind damage anywhere. A section of houses in Vilano beach washed out pretty good...Most places the high dunes held. SouthBeach Grill looks ok, but a lot of beach washed away.

Crescent Beach lost a lot of dune at South-beach Grill, but the buildings looked ok. The beach was very clean except for the vegetation that has rolled itself into tangled balls. Hope they just drag them up to the dunes to start catching sand. Micklers Landing also lost a lot of dues but was covered in wood...docks, stairs, fences, etc. Lots of Stainless Steel bolts in broken lumber if anyone needs some.

FEMA may provide rent money for temporary housing for renters. When we got hit by Sandy, FEMA was on the ground within days and asked what we needed. I would suggest going online and filing a claim and getting a number and they will contact you at some point. I'm not generally a fan of Govt but will admit that I was impressed with FEMA's response, at least in our area. My sense is that they will be pretty responsive given the intensity of this storm.

My closest friend lives in Ponte Vedra but was in St Pete for a wedding. Heading home today and not sure what he is going to find. Neighbors sent him shots of flooding and big trees down blocking the main road. Hope you made out ok.

Thanks, I looked at the FEMA site. They are taking applications but no determination for individual grants have been made. The damage I've seen is much more water related than wind. If you're lucky enough to be a little higher than the water, it made all the difference. Crescent Beach low areas flooded. I'm pretty sure her house will be demolished. The floor is gone. I was walking on carpet draped over joists.

A section of old A1A just south of Matanzas Inlet was washed away. Major damage to Summer Haven. They just didn't have the extra few feet of elevation they needed.

That's old A1A. My buddy has a house on New A1A about a block south of where that pic was taken. Water didn't even get to his house. I have other friends that live on the west side of A1A in Crescent just north of the bridge. They had water up to the pool deck but not in the house.
