We live in a society that’s more concerned about saving lives than preserving the value of a home.
But in this case, we don’t know if the homes that flood are the ones that are actually worth saving.
I don’t think anyone knows how many people were living in those homes before they flooded.
And that’s because the government is not keeping track of what homes have flooded.
So when you see the amount of money that’s being spent to save these homes, that’s the kind of money we should be thinking about.
But we do know what’s going on in Florida.
There’s been a lot of focus on how many homes have been saved.
But we’re not seeing the money that we would have liked to see.
When I talk to people who have lived in these homes and talked about the devastation, it’s hard to get them to actually talk about the damage.
We don’t have a sense of what the cost is.
The government doesn’t even track that.
So we’re left wondering.
What are we going to do with these houses that are in such bad shape?
Is it really worth saving them?
Will we be able to salvage some of them?
How much of the $1.8 billion of housing relief was spent on the homes affected?
In some cases, it was.
In others, it wasn’t.
But for those affected, the government’s report indicates that at least a quarter of the money was spent in the past year on repairs and rehabilitation.
We’re not getting the full picture of what’s happened in Florida because there’s been no public report on how much of that money was used for repairs.
And there are some areas of the country where they’ve said that’s not true.
So I think we’re going to have to wait and see.
But I also think there are a lot more dollars in there than people realize.
It’s important to note that while it’s not known exactly how much money has been spent on repairs, the Federal Emergency Management Agency did say that in the aftermath of the storm, the federal government had a $2.3 billion reserve account that it could use to pay for needed repairs.
The other issue with the state of Florida is that we have no idea how many of the people who are currently in these houses have been displaced.
And I think that’s a big part of why we’re getting so little information.
