Brown is just one of the thousands of people who are coming back to their homes after evacuation to survey his property and retrieve usable belongings.

In a video of Brown’s visit, you can see him rummaging through their possessions that were all floating in almost waist-high floodwaters.

It was at this time that he noticed a jewelry box that contained his wife’s engagement ring. Though unexpected, it was a pleasant surprise to find the ring amidst the chaos in the house.

Brown, may have lost almost all his possessions but he learned how to appreciate the most important things in life like family and good health.

“My family’s fine, nobody’s hurt,” Brown said. “That’s the main thing because I think all this material stuff can be replaced,” he added.

Brown and his family, like many others who were directly affected by the storm, still have a lot on their plate even after clean-up and the rebuilding process. The experience will undoubtedly leave physical and mental health concerns later.

Nonetheless, the family man shared that he is trying to maintain a healthy and positive attitude amidst all that happened to him and his family.

The impact of this hurricane is second to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 with an estimated economic cost to over a $100 billion.
