My best friend Stephanie Howe and her three kids Aaden (9), Avery (8) and Maverick (4) have lived in their home in Leland, NC for the past 8 years. During Hurricane Florence their neighborhood was placed under an evacuation and they were able to safely leave the area to stay with family and myself in Upstate New York. While all four of them are safe including their puppy, their home has suffered immense damage from Hurricane Florence. They were able to view drone footage of their home and unfortunately the water level in their neighborhood was up to the second floor of the home. As the road conditions are not safe to travel back into the area at this time they have not been able to assess the damage but only have received updates from people in the area. Since the home was not located in a flood zone, they had no flood insurance, and the damage will not be covered under her homeowner’s policy. They currently face a long and expensive road to reestablishing their home. Please donate if you can anything will help!
