The U.S. Small Business Administration filing deadline for the severe storms, straight-line winds, flooding, landslides and mudslides from Nov. 5 to Dec. 2, 2021 was March 7 for physical damage and is Oct. 5 for Economic Injury Disaster Loans. However, applicants may still apply for the former through the SBA website until April 21 by providing justification for missing the March 7 deadline.

– Many Washington residents may believe they don't need to buy flood insurance because they don't live in a high-risk flood zone. However, flooding can happen anywhere, often to the surprise of residents who thought they were covered for disaster. One inch of floodwater can cause up to $25,000 of damage in a home and when flooding happens, the damage is not covered by most homeowners' insurance policies.

The March 7 deadline to apply for FEMA disaster assistance has passed, but help is still available for survivors of the declared disaster of Nov. 5 – Dec. 2 as FEMA continues working with the Emergency Management Division of the Washington Military Department.
