Orange, Osceola, Polk and Seminole counties are now eligible for FEMA assistance after Hurricane Ian.

Individuals and households in Orange, Osceola, Polk and Seminole counties can apply for FEMA Individual Assistance, which may include temporary housing assistance, basic home repairs and certain other uninsured disaster-related needs.

These counties join Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Hardee, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota counties, which were previously approved for Individual Assistance.

Survivors can apply for disaster assistance at disasterassistance.gov, by calling 800-621-3362 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern Time, or by using the FEMA mobile app. If you use a relay service such as video relay service (VRS), captioned telephone service or others, give FEMA the number for that service.

    Driving down Martin St. we saw some young boys having the time of their lives swimming, and playing in the flooded high water retention pond at Martin and Lake St. Boys will be boys. Sure hope there isn't any snakes slithering around in there!

    Interesting that some of the best news reports of anything Florida related, always is found on the UK news sources. BBC has some very good coverage of Hurricane Ian's aftermath, here in Florida. I watched the older women residents of the Sun Seeker Mobile Home Park, who have lost it all, and feel so hopeless. So sad. Somewhere there on the southwest coast, Fort Myers, I think....
