Flood waters after this week’s heavy storms are receding but the damage left behind will take a while to deal with.
Some low lying roads were flooded and others are still flooded while some of the damaged caused will need to be repaired before they can be reopened to traffic.
Some homes that suffered damage will also take a while to clean up.
Some will have to pay for the repairs themselves depending on the type of damage.
Storm damage is likely covered by homeowners insurance but you may not be covered for flood damage if you do not have flood insurance.
Authorities also warn those that suffered damage to be on the lookout for those that might try to scam you on repairs.
