As the flood waters begin to gradually recede in Texas and Louisiana, residents are going home to assess the damage and see what remains after Hurricane Harvey swept through. Many will be unsure of where to start or how to manage the claims process.

Safety should be the first priority when returning to a home or business. Do not enter unstable buildings or structures that need to be cleared for re-entry by local authorities. Before entering the structure, walk around the exterior to make sure there are no major holes or other signs of collapse, loose pipes or downed wires that could pose a danger. Beware of broken windows and doors, since they may allow snakes, alligators and other wildlife to enter the premises.
