From "Flood Plan is in Place", printed in the Times Newsweekly, 6/12/08:
Common sense advice was issued to homeowners by [Jennifer] Manley on what to do in the aftermath of serious water damage.
Manley recommended taking photos of the entire affected area, keeping track of saved receipts which can be used to purchase replacement items, avoid contaminants when cleaning up and contacting one's insurance company as soon as possible.
Thanks, Jen, now here's some friendly reminders for you to bring back to the Mayor.
- We have had no infrastructure improvements since last year's floods.
- We already have had several strong storms this year, and it's not even summer yet.
- Our rezoning still has not happened; we are at 4 years and counting.
- Overdevelopment in Queens has not slowed down any.
