ORLANDO, Fla. – It’s been more than a week since Hurricane Ian caused widespread devastation in Florida, and as the extent of the devastation becomes clearer, officials estimate it will likely become one of the deadliest and deadliest hurricanes in US history.

“The initial FEMA designations, which we pushed from my office and throughout the congressional delegation, were very important,” said Waltz. “That allows our local county officials to do the job of clearing the debris. It offers that early personal support, which can go up to $38,000. And finally, I think we’ll also get certain property designations, which will provide a different kind of support. “

Federal assistance is available to those affected in most counties of Central Florida, with the exception of Brevard, Marion, and Sumter.
