FEMA provided assistance for three disaster declarations in Tennessee in the last several months, including severe storms and flooding on Aug. 21, 2021, in middle Tennessee, and a tornado outbreak on Dec. 10-11, 2021, in middle and west Tennessee.
As part of the disaster assistance process, FEMA must determine ownership and occupancy of damaged primary residences. The agency has taken steps to make it easier for disaster survivors to verify ownership and occupancy.
Flooding is terrifying, and even after flooding has stopped, damage left behind can be dangerous to health and safety. Here are some steps to follow after a flood.
FEMA has two types of facilities operating in Eastern Kentucky to provide in-person help to flood survivors. Different services are available at each type of facility.
Move your storm recovery forward by making sure you have the right information before you repair and rebuild your storm-damaged home. Contact your community’s building and permitting departments to determine if you need a local permit to begin repairs. Rebuilding the right way now could save you money and time later.
