If Your Home is Damaged or Destroyed
Homeowners should contact their insurance carrier as soon as possible to begin the claims process; however, standard homeowner policies do not cover flood damage. Be sure to take photographs of any damage as temporary repairs are made to protect from further damage.
FEMA provides housing assistance for qualifying disaster victims. Homeowners within a designated federal disaster area may call toll-free 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) to register for assistance.
Applicants should be prepared to describe losses and provide their Social Security number, financial information, and directions to the damaged property.
