AUBURN, Ala.— Alabama Extension has created a special website to help people recover from Hurricane Michael. The website, MichaelRecoveryInfo.com, is a source of information on recovery for families, communities, and those in the agricultural industry. There you will find information on disaster assistance, storm cleanup, chain saw safety, scams after a disaster, mold abatement, post-storm tree assessment and also much more.
All the information on the website is contributed by Extension specialist and agents and faculty members from Auburn University. The information is available in a variety of formats, including articles, videos and fact sheets.
“MichaelRecoveryInfo.com is a comprehensive resource for the state’s residents,” said Dr. Gary Lemme, Alabama Extension director. “During recovery, Alabama Extension wants the public to know that we are a reliable source of information for farmers as well as homeowners.”
MichaelRecoveryInfo.com features research-based information that deals with agriculture, business and home and garden.
“We encourage everyone to make use of MichaelRecoveryInfo.com,” Lemme said. “Use the information you find there to make the recovery from Hurricane Michael as easy as possible.”
In addition to MichaelRecoveryInfo.com, Alabama Extension will be posting information about recover efforts to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Keep up to date with the latest information by liking The Alabama Cooperative Extension System Facebook page and also follow them on Twitter @ACESedu and on Instagram @alabamaextension.
In addition to the recovery website, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System has the Emergency Handbook. This handbook discusses both preparation and recovery topics when it comes to severe weather. It is available as a free iBook download and is also available on the Alabama Extension website.
