Hurricane Zeta recovery one week later

With all the Election Day coverage, some local business leaders are still keeping Hurricane Zeta recovery efforts on the radar and at the top of the list here in South Mississippi.

It’s been about a week since Hurricane Zeta took the Gulf Coast region by storm, but still today the cleanup continues.

South Mississippi insurance agents have been busy ever since, a balancing act between handling their own losses and those of their clients.

The projected price tag of Zeta’s overall loss to onshore properties throughout the Gulf Coast region is more than $4 billion, according to the Insurance Journal on Tuesday with South Mississippi residents still on edge as we keep a close eye out for these last few weeks of this very active hurricane season. Jennifer Arde with Arde Insurance Group said, “It’s never too late. Of course, it’s not going to go back and cover any damages that’s someone’s already had, but starting new with a new policy. We can write new policies. We can add wind to policies. As of the effective date, when they purchase the policy, it’s effective.”

And for those of you who are still cleaning up after Hurricane Zeta, Lowe’s stores throughout South Mississippi on Wednesday will have a Bucket Brigade Give-Away to help you out.

Lowe’s D’Iberville Store Manager Jesse Hahn said, “We have some cleaning supplies for the community. Lowe’s has a long history of helping the community after these events. Of course, we want to be a beacon of light for our community. Come on out at 10 am. It’s while supplies last. As you can see, we have some stuff that’s going to help the community.”

The giveaway is first come, first serve Wednesday morning at Lowe’s locations in D’Iberville, Waveland, Gautier, and Gulfport.
