Mahoney Looks Over Moore Haven Damage

Congressman Seeks Federal Aid

Moore Haven, FL – Today, Congressman Tim Mahoney (FL-16), along with FEMA and Glades County officials, inspected homes damaged by Tropical Storm Fay and met with residents displaced by the storm.

Although Glades County sustained serious damage in Tropical Storm Fay, FEMA has not included the County in its Individual Assistance (IA) disaster relief program.

Mahoney invited FEMA and state officials to inspect the 77 homes that were damaged during Tropical Storm Fay so that the agency can make a final determination.

"Tropical Storm Fay seriously damaged the homes and businesses in Glades County, particularly in Moore Haven," said Congressman Mahoney.

"I urge FEMA to provide disaster relief funding to help our residents and business owners to recover from this storm."
