Messages to family, neighbors, and insurance companies are often spray painted directly onto the residences. Since street signs, mailboxes, and house numbers are blown away, these notes helps insurance adjusters quickly find the homes they need to inspect. Spray paint is also used in a more official manner. An "X" on the house indicates the search and rescue team has come through. The number at the top is the inspector I.D., the space on the right signifies any hazards found in the house, the space on the left is team information, and the number at the bottom indicates any bodies found.
