How To File For Hurricane Harvey Damages in Aransas Pass
When Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Gulf Coast, thousands of people lost their homes to the storm’s wind and rain. Some homes and business were severely damaged by the flooding and require thousands of dollars of repairs. The town of Aransas Pass, a mainland region separated from the adjacent Port Aransas by just a few miles of water, has a population of just under 10,000 residents. Many of these residents evacuated the area before Harvey hit. The coastline region of Aransas Pass includes many docks, boats, and coastline properties, many of which have been destroyed in the wake of the hurricane.
When Harvey hit the coast, the force of the storm hit Texas with immediate and devastating effects, and the area of Port Aransas and Aransas Pass was perhaps most directly affected when Harvey descended upon Texas in August 2017. Experts estimate that Hurricane Harvey will unquestionably go down as one of the most expensive natural disasters in modern history, amounting to anywhere from $5 to $20 billion in damages once the aftermath has been fully assessed.
