With Hurricane Ian sweeping through the southeastern United States, relief efforts are needed, and Beasley Media Group is supporting the Red Cross Disaster Relief in its mission to support those affected by the hurricane.
The Preston & Steve Show took time to spotlight the Red Cross Disaster Relief. We heard stories from different listeners, several of whom found themselves and their loves deeply impacted by Hurricane Ian. Listener Rich and his family live in Fort Myers and suffered greatly, unfortunately losing everything in their home to four to five feet of water. Listener Allie’s parents were in the eye of the hurricane for over twelve hours, taking shelter in a closet in their home.
We also got to hear from a long-time listener, Mark, who told us that getting flood insurance in the state of Florida is nearly impossible. He informed us of terrible clauses in policies like having to have your roof blown off to qualify. Mark has been listening to WMMR since 1971, and he appreciates everything the station has done since, including it and Beasley Media Group’s support of the Red Cross Disaster Relief.
Steve Wilson, a friend of the show and the head honcho of Wilson’s Secret Sauce, checked in as well. He and the folks at Wilson’s Secret Sauce have been delivering food and supplies to those in the southeast as part of the relief effort. Steve likes to run his business with a community-oriented mindset, and he says that supporting the relief effort is a major part of that.
Listener Chris, an insurance agent, called in with information about what can and can not get covered during times like this. Flooding insurance is a slippery slope overall, but he encourages people to look towards the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) for details.
