The management of Just Us EnterprisesEmergency Disaster Preparedness observed the extensive damage to homes, businesses, farms and workplaces. Tons of sloppy wet carpets, insulation, wallboard, lumber, furniture and personal belongings, recently removed from buildings in Kinston, NC revealed the extent of the destruction. Farms inundated with flood water are destroyed. Businesses and workplaces are uninhabitable. Just because you do not hear about it in the news does not mean that the problem is resolved. Heaps and piles of debris strewn kinston-flood-10-30-2016-15-copyacross roads, lawns, parking lots and sidewalks remain scattered where the flood or the clean-up crew left them. The floods destroyed entire blocks of businesses of which many are still closed and cannot reopen. Some are able to rebuild but many  more were not covered by insurance.

Hundreds, if not thousands of people lost everything. Some structures had flood water above the door-frames and up to the roofs of homes. These people, through no fault of their own, are suffering due to the flood that not okinston-flood-10-30-2016-1nly took their homes and work places, but their jobs and income as well. Many, about two hundred or more in North Carolina alone, still cannot return to their flood ravaged homes. Some streets, for example Queen Street and other roads are still not accessible because the roads are washed out or still under water.For some, there is some assistance through the state and federal government.
