President Trump Approves Federal Major Disaster Aid for Hernando County
HERNANDO – Thousands of residents remain without power across the County and property damage is still being assessed by homeowners and officials. Over the last few days, dozens of residents have voiced concerns over Hernando County not being listed on FEMA’s Disaster Assistance list, but that all changed today, after President Donald Trump amended the Major Disaster Declaration to include Hernando County. President Trump’s decision triggers the release of Federal funds to help individuals and communities recover from Hurricane Irma.
Victims can apply online at www.disasterassistance.gov or call 1-800-621-3362. Those with disabilities or hearing loss can use TTY by calling 1-800-462-7585.
Hernando County Emergency Management Officials continue to monitor the situation and ask residents to call 352-754-4083 or go to www.hernandocounty.us/em/road-closures to report road obstructions and receive a list of closed roads.
The Hernando County Government Center, located at 20 N. Main Street in Brooksville will be open starting this Thursday, September 14th.
RNRF will continue to bring the latest storm related updates as they develop.
