Tell us about your bills following a hurricane or flood

Increasingly, Americans are struggling to deal with extreme weather disasters. Millions of people lost power. Many were injured or fell ill. And homes have been destroyed in floods and storms or severely damaged by winds, water, mold or other consequences.

We want to tell this story of what happens long after the floodwaters have subsided, looking at the long-term costs and consequences of climate catastrophe. And a powerful way to do that is to look at people’s bills and other documents that detail what they’ve been through.

If you would like to share your experience with a New York Times reporter, please use the form below to tell us about your flood and hurricane related expenses. We are particularly interested in testimonials from people who have sailed:

  • Home repair expenses.

  • Medical bills.

  • Insurance claims, such as water damage or auto repairs.

  • Government disaster relief forms.

  • Praise forgiveness.

  • Mold-related bills, insurance claims or denials.

In addition to leveraging your experiences to inform our stories, we hope to connect with you later, possibly with email updates or online gatherings.

The Times will not share your information outside of our reporting team and will not publish any part of your submission without contacting you first. A journalist may be in contact with you to find out more. If you prefer to use a means of communication designed to help protect anonymity, you can do so at
