Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump declared that a major disaster exists in the State of Florida and ordered Federal aid to supplement State, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by Hurricane Sally beginning on September 14, 2020, and continuing.
Federal funding is available to State, tribal, and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by Hurricane Sally in Escambia County.
Federal funding is also available to State, tribal, and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency protective measures in the counties of Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Walton, and Washington.
Finally, Federal funding is available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
Pete Gaynor, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Department of Homeland Security, named Jeffrey L. Coleman as the Federal Coordinating Officer for Federal recovery operations in the affected areas.
Damage assessments are continuing in other areas, and more areas and additional forms of assistance may be designated after the assessments are fully completed.
At Board of County Commission meeting this morning, County Administrator Janice Gilley said Individual Assistance hasn’t been granted but the county’s application is being reviewed by FEMA. So, keep sending photos to the county.
Gather several photos that show your damage, write a short email (up to 200 words) telling your story about Hurricane Sally damage, include the physical address of the damage and send the email it to email@example.com.
