“This powerful storm caused severe flooding and spawned numerous rare tornadoes, which left homeowners and communities devastated. That’s why my administration worked swiftly to get approval for federal disaster aid,” Gov. Wolf said. “Disaster assistance is now available so I encourage everyone who was directly impacted by this storm to register today.
Following applications, residents will receive notification letters from FEMA either by U.S. mail or by electronic correspondence explaining their next steps. Applicants who are unable to live in their primary residence will be contacted by an inspector via phone to schedule an inspection. All inspections will be conducted without entering residences.
