      Tennessee Governor Bill Lee asked FEMA to work with TEMA on a joint Preliminary Damage Assessment (PDA) to determine the state’s eligibility for federal assistance to support power restoration and recovery efforts in counties impacted in the floods and severe ice storms.

The ice storm claimed one life in Haywood County, disrupted travel, downed trees and powerlines, and cut off power for tens of thousands of Tennesseans. “We are pursuing every option to ensure areas affected by the recent floods and ice storm recover well and Tennesseans receive resources,” Lee said in a statement Wednesday. “I thank our federal, state, and local partners who are assisting us in a thorough accounting of the damage incurred.” “I want to thank @T_E_M_A, @myTDOT and all emergency response officials who have been on the ground in impacted areas clearing roads & helping Tennesseans get back on their feet,” Governor...

The homeowner’s association for the Hennepin Village Community assessed every resident somewhere from $9,000 to $14,000 for roof damage repairs after a hailstorm in August.

Here is the firm’s full statement: As you might expect to be the case, issues involving homeowners associations can be complex. This situation is no different. As you may recall,...
