Sorry to hear it, but glad all are safe and the house is salvageable.

If you think of a way we can help, just holler.

Partially livable doesn't sounds so good?

I hear about these major weather events and think everyone I know will be out of the path. Very sorry to hear of your misfortune.

As far as down hives goes quickly getting them set upright with a cover within 24 hours gives you a good chance they will survive. A good shot of syrup after restacking seems to improve their moral as far as rebuilding.

best of luck to ya'...

Wow, my heart goes out to you. Deal with what's important first, bee's are replaceable, you and yours aren't.

Glad to hear you are okay, but sorry about your losses and all the clean-up work ahead of you.

I agree with Jack - I think weather in the past several years has, on the average, stayed the same, but the extremes are more extreme. Droughts are worse, floods are worse. Number of tornadoes and hurricanes about the same, but they are stronger. Mother Nature is trying to tell us something.

Wow, glad you and your family are ok! That's the important thing.

If you had the hives at home and they aren't owned under a business name I think your homeowners insurance should be able to cover the financial loss for the bees in addition to the damage to house and other personal property. You should probably check with your claims adjuster.
