I live in Oklahoma and we've been hit by a major ice storm. We've (the whole town) lost power since Thursday afternoon. I have taken my family to the in-laws 2 hours away. I have finally located a portable generator and purchased it, along with some extension cords, a couple of space heaters, and a couple of other necessary accessories. A co-worker of mine told me that, when we had the last ice storm, that FEMA reimbursed him for the cost of the generator, cords, and fuel. We have been declared a federal disaster area as we have had no power in 3 days. Anyone have any experience with FEMA that might be helpful? I intend to also file a claim with my insurance company, but not sure if they can or will help, and as reasonable as I feel the cost of the generator is, it's a big bite out of the wallet that I really can't afford right now. But, it was necessary to avoid further damage from the cold. I would appreciate any input. I have no idea how to even start the process.
