The federal disaster declaration for Texas has been expanded to provide Individual Assistance to six additional counties as a result of the severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding that occurred between May 4th and June 19th, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
In addition, FEMA today approved an extension of the deadline to register for assistance in the 42 counties designated for Individual Assistance. The new deadline is August 21, 2015.
The six Texas counties newly designated for Individual Assistance are Angelina, Erath, Frio, Jim Wells, Montgomery and Trinity.
Texans who had storm damage should register with FEMA even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but under-insured applicants may be eligible for help after their insurance claims have been settled.
People can apply for FEMA assistance online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or call 800-621-3362 toll free from 7am – 10pm daily until further notice. Multilingual operators are available.
Disaster assistance applicants who have a speech disability or hearing loss and use TTY should call 800-462-7585 directly; for those who use 711 or Video Relay Service (VRS), call 800-621-3362. The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7am to 10pm seven days a week until further notice.
FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program has a call center to answer Texas policyholders’ flood insurance questions.
