Florida Disaster Assistance & Relief

Florida sits in the path of many Hurricanes every year. And while Floridians prepare for the worst, sometimes there is no preparation for what actually happens. Hurricanes can be unpredictable in their destruction. And it is not just wind damage that Florida faces, it is flooding after the storm. When these hurricanes hit hard, Florida is ready with agencies that offer assistance before, during and after the storm.
