Steve Kanstoroom
Talbot County resident and Hurricane Isabel victim

One year ago, Steve Kanstoroom's Talbot County home was damaged by Tropical Storm Isabel. After the damage of the storm, many victims were left to face a second nightmare of dealing with their insurance claims. Red tape, delays and pennies on the dollars are just a few of the problems they've encountered. Mr. Kanstoroom has become an advocate for storm victims, not just in Maryland, but also in Florida. Mr. Kanstoroom is also preparing a report for Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith to show the underlying causes of insurance problems and suggest possible solutions.
