Worcester Co. Residents Impacted by Sandy Still Urged to Report Losses to FEMA

Posted:

SNOW HILL, Md.- Worcester County residents and business owners whose properties sustained damage as a result of Hurricane Isabel are encouraged to report individual residential or business damage to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

FEMA denied Worcester County requests for individual assistance, as the county fell short of meeting a minimum threshold, which considered the availability of volunteer agencies, insurance, temporary housing assistance, low interest loans and other resources in determining an area's need for federal aid. However, in light of federal relief being granted to Somerset County, officials said Worcester County homes and businesses are still urged to report damage by calling toll free at 800-621-FEMA (3362). Speech or hearing impaired individuals may call toll free at 800-462-7585.

When contacting FEMA, each resident will be asked to provide his or her name, address of the property damaged, social security number, family's gross income, proof of residency, current telephone number and insurance information such as policy number(s) and agent's name.

Officials said that residents must have already contacted their insurance providers to report damages before contacting FEMA. Government aid is not available to replace damages or losses already covered by private insurance.
