The University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley decided to cancel classes Thursday after the campus in Edinburgh was flooded. Hurricane Hanna has cut a swath through southern Texas with winds of 90 mph, destroying power supplies in an unprecedented COVID, flooding roads and structures and damaging infrastructure in a border region already affected by a range of resources - including floods and other natural disasters. The Category 1 hurricane made landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast on Saturday night, bringing up to 15 inches of rain to the Rio del Rio Valley. As the storm moved through the river valley, triggering flash floods, up to 20 inches or rain fell in parts of southern Texas and northern Mexico, according to the US Geological Survey.
Hidalgo, Cameron and Starr counties were hardest hit, with 3 to 5 inches of additional rain falling as the downgraded tropical storm brought to a halt in the nearby mountains of northern Mexico.
No major flooding was reported in Cameron County, Valley Central reported, and no water rescues were needed in Hidalgo County. In Cameron, officials conducted more than 200 water rescues after heavy rains flooded several homes and businesses in the city of San Antonio, the county's largest city, said John Peralta, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety.
The total damage, including uninsured property, is likely to be several tens of millions of dollars or more, but that has yet to be verified. The insured loss is estimated at about $260 million, and the total damage to the entire Valley of Hidalgo, Cameron and Cameron counties is not yet determined. The $200 million in damage was in contrast to the $500 million in damage caused by Hurricane Dolly, which has caused damage across the Valley, according to Valley Central.
One thing to consider when calculating the cost of restoring disasters to the Mcallen project is the geographic location of your home, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
If you live in a growing city like McAllen, Texas, you can find out if your home and possessions are covered directly by homeowner insurance. Flood insurance is a special policy supported by the National Flood Insurance Program. Tenant insurance covers you if a tenant upstairs runs water in the bathtub and floods your apartment due to a burst pipe. Finding and hiring a public insurance adjuster in McAllen, Texas, or a McAllen-area public adjuster could be one of the best decisions you can make.
If you have tried to dry out your cellar on your own, watch out for the following symptoms, which may cause further damage. We recommend calling Amigo Construction, LLC in case of flooding, but you may not need to do so because we are prepared for it. Your house may have been flooded for one of the above reasons or for another reason.
Our Mcallen disaster restoration services can help you save your property from damage and make it a livable space again. We will use our comprehensive water damage remediation plan to assess the extent of the damage and then develop a comprehensive water damage remediation plan. We can return your home or business to its condition before loss by repairing drywall, cabinets, etc. If flooding causes significant damage to your vehicle, you will probably have to return to it. This is not possible, but it is worth keeping an eye on what happens to the vehicle after the weather has cleared up, so that you know whether it will cause further damage in the next few days or weeks.

Water damage can come from a variety of sources, including leaks, floods and high humidity levels. Just one inch of water in your home can cost you $27,000 or more if drywall, floor insulation is mitigated or repaired. There are many cases of floor repairs, but if the damage is not repaired immediately, it can become permanent.
