Karen Bryant, along with her husband Mark, owns the All Premier Insurance Agency, a PIA member independent agency in Denham Springs, La., site of much flooding in recent weeks. Bryant has had a harrowing few weeks.

In addition to helping her clients cope with the aftermath of the flooding, Bryant and her family are also flood survivors. Her single-story home had five feet of water in it, and it’s a total loss — a story similar to those of her clients.

Bryant shares her story with the National Underwriter/PC360.

This was a different event than Hurricane Katrina, explained Richie Clements, 2015 president of PIA National, and head of his own agency. Clements, located in Chalmette, La., east of New Orleans, is a survivor of Katrina who understands well the issues Bryant and her fellow insurance agents are facing. He, too, handled endless claims for clients during Katrina while dealing with his own flooded home.  more
