Cleanup Damaged Homes: Rumors continue to surface related to damage from Hurricane Harvey. Chambers County Public Information Officer Ryan Holzaepfel said he wants to dispel one of those rumors that those impacted by the storm should not remove flood-damaged sheetrock, flooring, carpet or other materials until the house is assessed by FEMA or insurance adjustors. Mr. Holzaepfel said that is false. Cleaning up and making temporary repairs to your storm-damaged property will not disqualify you from federal disaster assistance. The public information officer has this advice - put your health and safety first, take pictures or videos of your damaged home, make repairs to prevent further damage to your property, and keep your receipts to show FEMA and insurance inspectors.
Tax Extension: The Internal Revenue Service is giving Texas Hurricane Harvey victims automatic extensions to file some individual and businesses tax returns as well as an extension to make some payments until January of next year. Liberty CPA Byron Swaim said this extension applies to anyone with payments or filing deadlines pending between now and the end of 2017. The IRS is only offering these extensions to those who live in a declared Presidential Disaster Area. To find out more, go to the Internal Revenue Service website at
Helping Hand: Residents of Hobbs, NM, have extended a helping hand to Liberty County in the wake of widespread flooding from Hurricane Harvey. That hand of friendship includes an $18,000 donation plus needed supplies. $3,500 went to the Plum Grove Volunteer Fire Department to replace storm damaged medical bags and supplies, including an automated external defibrillator. Another $6,500 was given to the Hull-Daisetta ISD to help teachers purchase supplies to replace those damaged by flood waters at the elementary campus in Hull. The remaining $8,500 of the gift from New Mexico went to First United Methodist Church of Liberty’s Disaster Response Fund.
