FEMA/Matthew Update
Posted on Wednesday, October 19 @ 12:39:00 EDT (3 reads)

Matthew Recovery FEMA-4283-DR-FL Advisory - October 18, 2016

Last night, Individual Assistance was approved for four counties in Florida: Flagler, Putnam, St. Johns and Volusia.

- This means that homeowners, renters and business owners in these counties may apply for federal disaster assistance for their uninsured or underinsured damages that were a result of the effects of Hurricane Matthew.

* There are three ways to apply:
o Online at http://disasterassistance.gov
o On the FEMA Mobile App
o Calling 800-621-3362 (621-FEMA) between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service may also call 800-621-3362. People who are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech disability and a TTY my call 800-462-7585. Multilingual operators are available (press 2 for Spanish, 3 for other languages).

- FEMA assistance will not make you whole again – it won't cover all of your losses – but it can give you a helping hand to recover.
- If you have insurance and sustained damages, call your insurance company to file an insurance claim. FEMA cannot duplicate assistance for losses that are covered by insurance. However, you may still be eligible for assistance from FEMA for losses not covered by insurance.
- Joint damage assessment teams comprised of local, state and federal agencies are ongoing. These teams continue to document damages to homes, businesses and public facilities in Northeast Florida to inform determinations for any additional federal disaster assistance that may be warranted.
- As of COB on Oct. 17, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) had received 4,157 claims and made advanced payments of more than $1.67 million for Hurricane Matthew in the State of Florida.

Preliminary Damage Assessments
- If they haven't done so already, Florida residents who sustained damage to their homes as a result of Hurricane Matthew should contact their insurance agent immediately to report the damage and then closely monitor the claims process after reporting the loss.
- Individual Assistance (IA) Preliminary Damage Assessments are taking place on Tuesday (Oct. 18) in Brevard and Indian River Counties.
- Public Assistance (PA) Preliminary Damage Assessments are scheduled for Tuesday (Oct. 18) in St Johns and Martin counties.
- PDA teams bring together local emergency management, the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM), U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). They visit areas identified by the state to document the extent of damage caused by the hurricane.
- Separation of debris left at curbside is highly recommended. Examples include: vegetative, electronic goods, hazardous household waste and white goods (refrigerators, washing machines, etc.).

- If you are still in need of shelter or have other emergency needs, call 2-1-1 for information.
- To date, FEMA has been in Clay, Brevard, Duval, Flagler, Indian River, Nassau, Palm Beach, Putnam, St Johns and Volusia counties.
Debris Removal
- Individual property owners are responsible for debris removal from their private property unless otherwise requested by the state and approved by FEMA.
- Your local government will provide information on curbside pickup and disposal. FEMA reimburses local governments for eligible curbside storm-generated debris removal.

Clean Up Tips
- As recovery continues this in areas affected by Hurricane Matthew, continue your clean up.

- Please keep in mind the following tips to ensure safe and efficient clean-up:
o Take photos of any floodwater and damaged items in your home, and keep repair receipts.
o Call your insurance agent and file a claim.
o Wear protective gear when using mold-cleaning chemicals or cleaning up.
o Make sure contractors hired to make repairs are licensed and carry general liability insurance, workers' compensation and are bonded.
o FEMA does not recommend or endorse any contractors.
o Anyone who suspects fraud should call FEMA's Disaster Fraud Hotline at 866-720-5721, or the Florida Attorney General's fraud and price gouging hotline at 866-966-7226>.
o The National Association of Insurance Commissioners has developed a free smartphone app for taking inventory and documenting damage in homes after a disaster. "myHome Scr.APP.book" for iPhone or Android is available at http://www.insureuonline.org/insureu_special_disaster.htm.

Declaration Timeline
- Oct. 6 – President Obama issued an emergency declaration for 28 counties in Florida in anticipation of Hurricane Matthew's impact, authorizing FEMA to provide direct support the state in its efforts to prepare for, and to respond to, the incident.

- Oct. 8 – The president issued a major disaster declaration for Hurricane Matthew in the State of Florida which covers Public Assistance (Categories A and B) in eight counties: Brevard, Duval, Flagler, Indian River, Nassau, St. Johns, St. Lucie and Volusia. Individual Assistance (IA) for Florida counties is still under review pending further assessments.
- The established social media hashtag for Florida businesses after Matthew is: #FLOpen4Biz - @FLSERT.
Hazard Mitigation Grant Program
- All areas in the State of Florida are eligible to apply for assistance under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.
- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is providing technical support related to debris and coastal beach erosion in areas affected by Hurricane Matthew.

How You Can Help
- Interested in supporting those impacted by Hurricane Matthew? Here is what you can do:
- Cash: Financial support to established relief organizations is always the most immediate, useful and versatile way to give. Financial assistance allows relief organizations to meet urgent needs quickly. Click here to give to the Florida Disaster Fund – https://www.volunteerflorida.org/donatefdf/
- Connect: Volunteers are a critical part of a well-coordinated and well-resourced humanitarian response, but potential volunteers should confirm that they are needed before traveling to impacted areas – do not self-deploy.
