Some Help for 'Florence' Ravaged Homeowners

Yesterday, September 17, 2018, President Trump declared the storm-impacted areas of North Carolina and South Carolina a "major disaster". For homeowners, this means that FEMA is now authorized to provide assistance to individuals for temporary housing and home repairs. For your municipalities, the declaration means that the federal government will assist in defraying the costs of emergency services (mostly overtime) and clearing debris. Hopefully this is welcome news. Our thoughts are with everyone in the storm’s path.
