So FEMA can pick and choose what counties to help.. That is BS to say the least. There hasn't been any help for water or ice. Food going bad. We are almost out of drinking water as well.
Honestly does this really shock anyone that the government is not helping? Didn't everyone learn from watching the aftermath of Katrina and how long it took them to help and people had to start helping each other instead? Why keep relying on the government to save you? When we all know they won't or they will take their very sweet time doing so some of the residents of Katrina aftermath waited months onto a year or two for proper help be the one to save and help yourself and learn how to help your neighbor. Stop relying on the government to provide assistance
Kyle Kidd Polk county ISNT but Hillsborough county IS......................... After all that driving I saw far more damage in Polk county so I don't know how it wasn't included
I am guessing government doesn't come a day or 2 after a disaster. This is week 1 of a hurricane that took out a whole state. I am sure this is a lengthy process.
We had minor damage. I'm going to guess total losses maybe $2000 tops (food, sofit, and a fence panel).Our hurricane insurance deductible is $5000.
Hell no we aren't claiming insurance.
Don't need FEMA either. Well be all right.
Fence repaired temporarily with Flex Seal tape. I'll buy a new top rail out of pocket later on and fix it myself.
The sofit repair will have to be done by a pro. At least 20ft above ground.
So another words they're saying for these people and needs counties if you have no insurance you do not qualify for FEMA at all is that what this is saying
We are doing a great job helping each other in Highlands where 90% of our entire county is without power. Yet resources will begin to run thin soon. Yesterday there were only 4 stores open (on generators) and 2-3 gas stations in our ENTIRE county! We are coming together to meet each others needs and I know work crews are doing their very best (and are greatly appreciated)...yet it would feel good to know we were included in "needs" and "news" reports. I am cringing at the people complaining about 1 house or a small city block....when we are an entire county doing without...& making it work. #highlandsstrong
Contact your senators and congressmen, folks! US Rep Darren Soto Rep. Dennis A. Ross Rep. Gus Bilirakis Congressman Daniel Webster Tom Rooney Marco Rubio Bill Nelson
FEMA SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO HELP ONLY THE ONES WHO CAN AFFORD INSURANCE AND LIVE IN AREAS THAT ARE TOURIST AREAS. SOME OF THOSE WHO NEED HELP ARE NOT IN THOSE AREAS .
This is just downright wrong! My in laws have homeowners Ins their not depending on FEMA never were. knew they cannot depend on the govt not that they expect it. This is more about what our great Gov. Scott has been on tv for five days bragging how he and the rest of our govt is going to be there for us. Thanks but no thanks! Thank goodness your term is almost over!
