  • As flood levels dissipate and emergency management is able to assess the damage from the hurricane, the state will work with its FEMA partner on disaster designations.
  • FEMA has an app for constituents to upload pictures in order to document damage, apply for assistance, learn about the process, locate nearby shelters and local assistance in addition to numerous links and documents to help with preparedness, emergency relief and clean up/removal. You can dowlnoad that app here:
