Catastrophic flooding as a result of Hurricane Florence has caused an estimated $38 to $50 billion in damage to the Carolinas. Both homeowners and business owners, are now left struggling to rebuild what once was. In an effort to help those in the area who were greatly affected, Better Business Bureau serving Eastern North Carolina has created a free booklet, ReBuild With Trust,  which includes information on donating to trustworthy charities, avoiding contractor scams and future disaster preparedness.
