Clean and secure

William L. Snyder II, owner of B&B Enterprises, sweeps the sidewalk outside his auto business in Orange on Monday, Sept. 26. He owns several businesses in Orange and was not fully insured. He was told businesses will only be offered federal loans to rebuild.

(Left) William L. Snyder II, owner of B&B Enterprises, takes a break as law enforcement officials pass his auto business in Orange. He has a camper trailer located on his property and is armed to prevent looting.

Some folks have marveled at how rapidly Southeast Texas is recovering and how few looting incidents have occured. I think this image pair explains more about Southeast Texans.
