Be Aware Of Your Post-Hurricane Resources

Jacksonville and the surrounding region is on the mend after being hit by tropical storm Irma. Despite being downgraded from a hurricane, the tropical storm still caused substantial damage, as did the flooding that followed.

Many people were injured or lost their lives in the storm. Millions of dollars in damage was done to houses, businesses, public buildings, roads and more. As cleanup efforts move forward, it is valuable to know the resources that are available to Jacksonville residents and those in surrounding communities.

Where To Turn For Help

WOKV has provided an exhaustive list of post-Irma resources for residents of Jacksonville and the surrounding counties. On it, you will find places distributing water and offering shelter. It also includes information about road closures, school closings, government office closings and other closings. Further, it has hotlines you can call for everything from getting help cleaning up your property to reporting businesses that are unfairly raising prices in the wake of this disaster.

To apply for damage assistance from FEMA, homeowners can call 1-800-621-3362 (FEMA).

Just Because The Storm Has Passed Does Not Mean The Danger Is Gone

Many will continue to spend time picking up the pieces after this tropical storm, whether on their own or as part of their job. Area residents should use caution as they engage in cleanup efforts, either on their own property or elsewhere. The damage caused by Irma has left many threats behind. Safety is critical. 

Irma Did Not Damage Your Legal Rights

Following a hurricane or tropical storm such as Irma, people often find themselves in legal battles as they try to move forward with their lives. Those battles may be related to injuries suffered, property damage or other issues. If you find yourself in such a battle, know that the tropical storm does not negate your legal rights as a citizen. You have rights as as a homeowner, business owner, insurance policy holder, employee or whatever the case may be.
