.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

  yep--it was a big deal with shelter in place and evacuate the school-guy across the tracks ran
 some kind of trucking outfit--propane tanks exploded-buring trucks and his shop-huge damage for
him--and that was one fire out of five fires that where set-they had called in boraed bombers from
cal fire and helicopters and road closers--gona cost $$-  RDY-B

I work for a wholesale flower distributor and when I file claims for losses (due to the shipping carrier errors) I can claim the cost of the product plus profit I would have made on the product.  Make sure you get your fair share.  how much honey or profits would they have brought in for you?  Just something to think about.  Sorry for your loss.

Sorry for the loss.

There was a train derail here several years ago, one of the tank cars spilled acid all over the place and forced and emergency evacuation of the immediate area (read "you must leave right now"). My aunt and uncle were in this area, the r/r paid for motel, eats, clothes (no time to pack up anything), and basically anything they had a receipt for. Some other friends had a horse stable and they paid for relocating the horses to another stable and all labor, feed, boarding, etc.
It was a very painless thing, the r/r set up at a local church and was just writing checks.

Be sure to have any receipts for you equipment, and bring in any supporting paper work for lost revenue (think last year). You have an independent pic of your hives, if no receipt make a list and put pricing to it from a catalog and take the catalog with you when you are making your claim, don't forget to include price of bees themselves.
