The power is back on for much of Texas, but now, residents are facing yet another challenge; insurance claims.

Millions of lives are in turmoil after broken water pipes and flooding lead to huge insurance claims, possibly on an unprecedented scale.

Now, Texans are facing challenges getting their damages appraised by their insurance companies.

"I don't know what i'm going to do, I honestly don't. We just want our home to be our home and not have to walk through the house and every time we see something it's a reminder of years of grief and trauma and fighting," said Tabitha Charlton, a Texas homeowner who fell victim to a burst pipe.

Some estimates say insurance claims from this storm could top $19-billion.
