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.
