Flood victims get relief from FEMA

Families who have been victims of the recent flooding in the stretch of Rio Grande Valley have started to see agents from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) begin the process of offering aid. FEMA representatives have started to evaluate the homes that were damaged by the flood. Homeowners who have applied for financial assistance were told by FEMA to prepare the necessary documents that will be asked for during the inspections in order to speed up the process as much as possible.

FEMA field specialist Alberto Pillot also advised homeowners to keep records of any renovations, improvements, or materials purchased for repairs as these costs may be reimbursed. Some homeowners may be entitled to assistance of up to $33,000 from FEMA.
