FEMA offers repair and building advice at Lowe’s

Posted on: 12.19.2016 at 08:43 a.m.

As North Carolinians repair or rebuild their homes damaged by the flooding that followed Hurricane Matthew, FEMA and home improvement stores in Columbus, Craven, Pasquotank and Richmond counties have teamed up to provide free information, tips and literature on making homes stronger and safer.
FEMA mitigation specialists will be on hand next week to answer questions and offer home improvement tips. They will also suggest proven methods to prevent or reduce damage from future disasters as well as offer tips and techniques to build hazard resistant homes. Most of the information and the free publications provided are geared for do-it-yourself work and general contractors.
Recovery topics to be covered include flood insurance, elevating utilities and rebuilding flooded homes.
FEMA advisors will be available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20 through Friday, Dec. 23 and from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 24 at Lowe’s Home Improvement off U.S. 701 bypass at 100 Green Hill Drive at South Whiteville.
