FEMA Teams Visiting Hard-Hit Areas Weeks after Storms
MERCEDES – Multiple disaster survivor assistance teams are going around Mercedes and meeting with flood victims after last month’s storms.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency says they’ve been going door-to-door for the last three days and expects for them to stay there longer.
KRGV’s Taylor Winkel visited the home of a resident whose story resonates with others who were also affected by high waters about three years ago.
A FEMA representative says if homeowners didn’t renew their FEMA insurance from the 2015 floods, they won’t qualify for additional federal aid. However, the rule changes if you don’t live in a floodplain.
If you’re like to request a disaster survivor assistance team, contact your local emergency manager of call FEMA at 1-800-621-3362.
