In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, individuals, localities and the State are beginning the process of recovery. While the recovery process is often a slow and frustrating experience, we can get through this together. Isle of Wight is currently working with the State to coordinate damage assessments to determine if the State will be eligible for federal disaster assistance. While the request process has begun, it will likely still be several weeks before we know if Isle of Wight and our citizens will qualify for federal (FEMA) assistance. It’s also important to remember that FEMA assistance is not guaranteed. It is critical that you contact us to report your damage (regardless of whether your loss is covered by insurance) so that your home’s damage will be assessed and documented.
When you report your storm damage to us, you help Virginia qualify for federal disaster assistance. Additionally, by reporting your damage, we will make sure that you are kept up to date on the status of the Commonwealth’s federal disaster assistance request and may be able to connect you to other resources that could assist you in your recovery.
