FEMA To Assess Hurricane Damage in Citrus County


Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) representatives arrived in Citrus County today to begin assessing storm damage following Hurricane Hermine.

Representatives from FEMA, the Florida Department of Emergency Management, and the Citrus County Building Division will be going house-to-house to speak to property owners and tenants this weekend, Saturday, Sept. 10 and Sunday, Sept. 11.

Residents of affected areas should not be alarmed to see or be visited by these representatives, said Cynthia Oswald, Citrus County public information officer, in a release. With permission from property owners, the teams will perform detailed assessments of property storm damage, such as flood damage, as part of the recovery efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Hermine.
