  1. We had some pretty bad flooding in New Jersey during the recent hurricanes. not only was my basement flooded, but so was the first floor of my house. It's a good thing I had the sense to move everything to the second floor before leaving. Unfortunately, this also means I sustained a ton of flood damage, luckily the insurance company helped me find a great fire and water damage restoration company that made my house livable again in no time.
