CLINTON, Miss. – Many Mississippians are just getting access to their property since the devastating May floods. Now is the time to call the FEMA inspector.
Disaster assistance for flooding survivors remains on hold until the flooded property is inspected. That is why it is so important to contact the FEMA inspector as soon as the property is accessible.
Accessible means that someone must be able to drive to the property and safely enter the home.
Those who have registered with FEMA should have the contact information for their inspector. Those who can’t locate the information can call the FEMA Helpline, 800-621-FEMA (3362) and request it.
Anyone who suffered flood damage in May should register for disaster assistance with FEMA. The simple 20-minute process can be handled by:
- Telephone: 800-621-FEMA (3362)
- TTY: 800-462-7585
- Videophone via 711 (Mississippi Relay Service)
- Online: www.DisasterAssistance.gov
- From mobile devices: m.fema.gov
- In Spanish: www.fema.gov/esp/index.shtm
FEMA will assist anyone with a disability who needs help registering—just ask.
