Living in Louisiana, incoming PIA National Secretary/Treasurer Robert Page has plenty of experience dealing with hurricanes. Robert just returned last Friday from a visit to Pensacola, Florida, where he had gone to help out several of his friends whose house suffered major damage as a result of Hurricane Ivan. He spoke with several agents and noted that a big problem is there are just not enough adjusters to handle the work load, because of the other hurricanes that have hit the state. Robert also described what he saw in Pensacola:

  • If the structure was located within a 1/4 mile of the beach almost all is total destruction.
  • If the structure was located within 1/2 mile of the beach then they had 3-4 foot of flood water and medium wind damage.
  • If you were more than 1/2 mile back from the beach then there were shingles blown off and several homes with trees that have fallen on them.
