Friday Deadline on Homeowner Disaster Assistance

St. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX/AP) – Time is running out for people impacted by the violent spring storms to file for financial assistance.

The deadline is this Friday and the window applies to any damage from tornadoes, floods or other weather related disasters between April 19 and June 6.

 People in all 25 Missouri counties with claims need to register with FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Todate  the agency has approved more than 30-million dollars in disaster assistance for individual homeowners and renters. That includes $17 million for residents of the Joplin area alone, the site of the killer May tornado.

FEMA’s John Mills says there’s no set amount for claims.  “It all depends on individual’s level of damage, what type of insurance coverage they have if any at all, and then what an inspector will find when they come and inspect the home a couple of days after you make the phone call.”

Mills tells KMOX’s Total Information AM that FEMA has also approved more than $971,000 in St. Louis County for the Good Friday storms.

    Database honestly has your back. It’s the content that matters…inside out – When it comes to your property, can you see what to expect in case of loss, e.g., hurricane, tornado, earthquake, flood, fire? If you are like most of the insuring public you draw a blank on that question. The bigger question is when will you preempt the course setting…join the base? http://www.DisasterPrepared.net
