LIBERTY, December 4, 2015 – I would like to remind residents that were affected by the October flood event in Liberty County, that FEMA has declared our area eligible for disaster assistance as a result of this flood.
Please contact FEMA at 1-800-621-3362 or on line at www.disasterassistance.gov, if you suffered damage due to the flood. This is the first step in receiving assistance for eligible losses so please register as soon as possible.
Many of you contacted the Liberty County Office of Emergency Management and provided us with data that was used to determine the eligibility of our county to be included in the disaster declaration,however,YOU MUST register with FEMA even if you reported your damages to our office.
FEMA assistance is available for many things so even if you have insurance you can register with FEMA in order to determine if any of your losses not covered by insurance, may be covered by one of many FEMA reimbursement programs.
Again, please register with FEMA by calling 1-800-621-3362 or by going on-line at www.disasterassistance.gov.
