Lubbock County citizens urged to save post disaster receipts: they can be valuable

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If the remnants of Hurricane Alex damaged your home or personal property on July 4th weekend, receipts from certain items can help determine your losses.

If you decide that certain items are needed for the sake of your family's safety and welfare, there are certain things to remember:

  • Save the receipts of every purchase you made to make your house safe, sanitary and secure.
  • When state and federal inspectors check the damage, receipts will help them properly determine your losses.
  • Take photographs of damaged property before you replace it. Be sure to show these to the inspectors. It could simplify their paper work and speed up a response to your disaster aid application.

If you have any questions about disaster assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, call the Helpline at 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). For anyone with a hearing or speech impairment, the toll-free number is (TTY) 1-800-462-7585. The number is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week until further notice.

For more information on the Hurricane Alex disaster recovery, browse the features on this FEMA website at www.fema.gov/hazard/hurricane/2010/alex/index.shtm.  Users of smart phones and other mobile devices can visit m.fema.gov.  Texans should also visit www.txdps.state.tx.us/dem for more information on this disaster and preparation for future disasters.
