FYI - My office realty (I owned a small office building in Rye, NY at the time), all my office furniture, fixtures, and equipment (including my computers and an expensive copy machine), my hardcopy tax library going back to 1913, and all my client files were totally decimated by flood waters on April 15, 2007. I've forgotten the name of the storm but, I literally lost everything. FEMA helped residential properties in the area and in other towns and parts of Westchester County but not small businesses. They did however, offer to extend me loan monies, which I had declined. From my personal experience, FEMA may not be of help when it comes to small business other than offering a loan.
Thank you, Ed Heben
