For Jay Lee Dean, this has been a bitter loss.
Dean moved his furniture repair shop to Riverdale less than a year ago, hoping to capitalize on its promising location near a busy highway.
That was before four feet of floodwater filled his shop last weekend, ruining his stock, his merchandise and his equipment. ((SO THIS IS, ESSENTIALLY A TOTAL LOSS FOR YOU? THIS HAS BEEN A TOTAL LOSS.))
If it's true, misery loves company, Dean is not alone.
Across the street at the Swanee Restaurant, they've lost a week's worth of business waiting for the waters to recede so that the building could be dried out and cleaned off. ((RAY FOWLER/RESTAURANT OWNER: ECONOMICALLY IT'S BEEN RIGHT TOUGH. YOU ADD THE LOSSES FOR THE EQUIPMENT AND THE FOOD PLUS THE LOSS OF BUSINESS. IT'S BEEN TOUGH.))

The first step is calling the toll free number to register for assistance.
