TALLAHASSEE, FL – Late this evening, Governor Rick Scott announced federal approval of a major disaster declaration for individual assistance for Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties due to the severe storms and flooding that impacted communities last week.
This declaration will help bring additional resources to support recovery efforts.
Governor Scott said, “We are continuing to work so every Florida family affected by last week’s storms has the resources available to get back on their feet. Tonight’s news ensures additional aid towards recovery, but our work is not done. We will continue to focus our efforts so every family in the area can recover, and I look forward to traveling back to the region to assess recovery operations."
