VIDEO REPORT: Burien Couple Not ‘In Good Hands’ Over Problem With Allstate
Remember the big snow and wind storm of Nov. 23rd, where harsh north wind gusted upwards of 40–50mph?
We sure do, as that’s when we posted a “Call For Help” to rally volunteers to help prolific Burien artists Dane Johnson and Kathy Justin quickly haul their stuff out of their condemned house on the north side of Three Tree Point. The storm battered their house all night, and around 5:30am that morning the foundation gave way and the structure started leaning towards Puget Sound.
Fast forward nearly a month later, and we discover that Dane and Kathy are not only homeless, but it appears their insurance claim has been denied by Allstate. And their house is slipping slowly closer to the water. Luckily, they have found a place to stay, but are still in need – if you can help, go to their Facebook Page here, which has info on how to donate to them.

KING5.com interviewed the couple and posted this story today (Monday, Dec. 20th):
