JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Governor Rick Scott says he has activated the state's disaster fund to help Floridians who need financial help following two recent storms.
The storm fund is called "Neighbors to the Rescue" and the money will go to help people who suffered damage to their businesses and properties in the wakes of tropical storms Debby and Isaac.
The Governor made the announcement from West Palm Beach.
“This morning, while Hurricane Isaac was beating down on western portions of the Panhandle, I got to see, first-hand, the flooding damage the storm left behind in Palm Beach County. We also have Floridians who are still recovering from Tropical Storm Debby,” said Governor Scott. “Your assistance will give much-needed help to our friends and neighbors in Florida who have sustained damages from these storms.”
