 CONWAY, MA
On February 25, 2017, a category 1 tornado touched down in several places in the small town of Conway, MA (population 1,900). Winds were clocked at 80-110 miles per hour. Although no one was injured and there was no loss of life, thousands of trees were downed, roads were blocked, and the Conway Congregational Church and more than six residences were severely damaged. Town, county, and state agencies and individuals have worked around the clock to check on residents, open roads, assess damage, and start the clean-up process.

This fund has been set up to respond to the outpouring of people asking how they can help the church and the residents who were impacted by the storm. Conway's Firemen's Auxiliary will manage this fund with input from town officials.

For updates on the status of the storm clean-up, check www.townofconway.com.

Homeowners insurance doesn't necessarily cover everything and there are many different levels of coverage. It's not a guarantee that insurance is going to help everyone affected. The large print giveth and the small print taketh away.

What Michael Bird said. Enough excuses. Pitch in, help your neighbors, do the right thing. It's as simple as that. Of course people are going to use their insurance, but this fund is for expenses and things that fall through the insurance cracks, of which there are MANY.

Insurance does cover a large portion of home & contents loss. But it does NOT cover removal of the debris, tree removal or replacement. Only a limited amount is allowed for temporary housing. If there is any Hazmat issues, leaking oil from an oil tank, that is NOT covered. We lost our home in 2011, and discovered many of these issues.
