Insurance adjusters at blast site early on helping families rebuild

They have spent more than a week at the site of a southside explosion, seeing the most devastated homes and trying to help those residents find a place to live for days, weeks or months.

Residents began filing insurance claims the morning after a massive blast killed two people and damaged dozens of homes in a southside neighborhood. Local insurance claims representatives have since been working at the site to help Richmond Hill residents.

They’ve been helping displaced residents move into motels, arranging for months of shelter in some cases and assessing extensive damage. They’re having structural engineers look at houses to make sure they’re safe to return to and helping arrange for repairs to broken windows, smashed-in garage doors and cracked drywall.
