You will need the following information: Address of the dwelling where the damage occurred (pre-disaster address), current mailing address, current telephone number, insurance information, total household annual income, routing and account number for checking or savings account (this allows FEMA to directly transfer disaster assistance funds into a bank account) and a description of disaster-caused damage and losses.

Some growers, particularly in South Florida, had predicted between 80% to 100% losses from Hurricane Ian, as wind blew fruit from trees and rain flooded groves and suffocated tree roots. – Paul Nutcher/Staff
