Check your coverage before disaster strikes

AUSTIN, Texas — The first two weeks of National Preparedness Month focused on helping Americans survive a disaster by encouraging everyone to make and practice their disaster plan and learn lifesaving skills. Week 3 turns attention to the post-disaster phase, when proper insurance can mean the difference between full recovery and financial devastation. No one should rely on federal disaster assistance to make them whole after a catastrophic weather event.

Federal assistance helping restore iconic Fulton convention center

AUSTIN, Texas — The Paws and Taws Convention Center hosted more than five decades of events in Fulton, Texas, before Hurricane Harvey tore through it in August. The beloved structure unfortunately could not be repaired, but its demolition didn’t end the Paws and Taws story or the memories created in the building. Rebuilding the 7,608-square-foot structure and its 1,488-square-foot deck was estimated to cost $2.8 million after winds lifted and damaged the walls, roof, floor and sub-flooring.
