A third storm has already been named this year as Tropical Storm Colin moves its way through the Gulf. Even though it is not expected to strengthen into a hurricane, there is still potential for flooding and wind damage. NECHAMA is monitoring its progress and will be in contact with local officials as it makes landfall.
Widespread flooding continues in Texas as the state may be in store for a "500-year flood" for the second year in a row.
NECHAMA is actively monitoring the situation and preparing for the possibility of a deployment to the area.
Back in 2014, NECHAMA responded to widespread flooding in Metro Detroit and spent the next 6 months mucking and gutting 300 homes throughout the city. Now 1 ½ years later, NECHAMA has returned to help with the ongoing road to recovery for homeowners in the Motor City.
Real estate professionals from across the industry rocked out for charity on April 12 at the fifth annual Real Estate Rockers in Relief concert at the Highline Ballroom in New York City.
