David Long of Oromocto has been living on his 10-metre boat since the St. John River spilled its banks in April and destroyed virtually everything on the first floor of his home. Long says he wants to do repairs before winter, but just had the first visit from an adjuster about a week ago. Ernie MacGillivray, director of the New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization, says he expects about 750 families will be eligible for assistance, and about half have been processed so far. He says all claims should be processed by the end of August, but expects some will appeal the amount offered. MacGillivray says the province paid out more than a million dollars in advance payments so that people could get the work started.
