FEMA Helps Hurricane Victims Recover

By  | 

Walk up, sign in, and dial out; that's the quick and simple system FEMA has set up for people to get reimbursed for storm damages.

Locals are taking advantage of this opportunity. From a wind-torn roof to just a couple of missing shingles, making the call is worth the effort.

Carol Murphy made the call. She says it wasn't a drawn out process of talking to machines.

FEMA only reimburses uninsured and underinsured losses and only if it was purchased or damaged during the storm.

John bought his generator the first day of the storm. Now he's trying to get reimbursed for the purchase.

FEMA will continue to be in the Fort Walton Beach area on Racetrack Road next to Cox Communications.

In Walton County, FEMA representatives are at the Walton County Regional Library. These centers are open seven days a week from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., and will continue operations until the last person is served.
