FEMA Helped Thousands with Flood Relief


BAY COUNTY April's heavy rains and major flooding caused severe damage to much of Northwest Florida.

After all the devastation--the Federal Emergency Management Agency opened up a number of recovery centers across the panhandle.

As of last week, all the centers closed, but FEMA reps say, for the few months they were open they helped a lot of people.

More than 9,500 Escambia County residents registered with FEMA.

Okaloosa County had 1,300 people register.

Walton County saw registration numbers of over 400.

Meanwhile, in Jackson County more than 330 people registered.

Escambia County received the most amount of federal money reaching a little over $23 million.

While Okaloosa County received close to $1.8 million and Walton County received more than $500,000 dollars.

Those impacted by the storms can still register with FEMA until July 7th.
