Patrick, I feel the same way!!! I have not been able to return home and like many of my neighbors in LB are getting the run around from our insurance companies. I lost everything and of course contents was not in my flood policy. Homeowners will not cover contents due to flood, so like many others we are stuck having to furnish a home, that's if the insurance co. decides on money amount . They just sent a structural engineer after 2+ months to go through the house or whatever is left to determine who covers the caved in roof, sink hole in bedroom and the movement of the house about 3-4 inches . I want to go home too!!!!
