N.C. Dept of Insurance sets up Insurance Camps, relief sites in hard hit New Bern, Jacksonville

RALEIGH — Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey has organized Insurance Camps to be held in flood-ravaged New Bern and Jacksonville this week to help storm victims recover from Hurricane Florence.

Representatives from approximately 20 insurance companies and FEMA will set up Tuesday in a village-like setting at the Lowe’s Home Improvement store parking lot, 1400 Lowe’s Blvd., New Bern, NC 28562 from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Agents will be on hand to answer questions and help file insurance claims.

On Wednesday, the camp will move to the Lowe’s Improvement Store parking lot at 425 Yopp Rd., Jacksonville, NC 28540 and take place from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

“We are going in to areas devastated by wind, rain and flooding to assist people whose homes and lives have been torn apart by Hurricane Florence,” said Commissioner Causey. “We want to give victims direct contact with their insurance company and others who can answer questions and address concerns so they can file insurance claims and can get their lives back on track as soon as possible.”
