We have not heard about buses resuming yet. The problem is this section of Burroughs. If busses cannot make the loop, they must back up and turn around at Fieldcrest. Please be patient, there are often other decisions involved in these matters. Also, as many of you begin to deal with flood insurance adjusters, you may want to hire your own priva te adjuster to fight for your claim. Look in the yellow pages under Public Adjusters, here’s a few names I found:Depiano Todisco877-665-6888Lucas & Assoc800-852-8041Alan Venus800-696-3036Also, for cleanup servicesorboth these sites have facts, questions, advice, etc.
