  1. FEMA website to apply for assistance  = FEMA
  2. Registering online at https://www.disasterassistance.gov/, is the quickest way to register for FEMA assistance since this event has lasted several days and the full scope of damages may not be evident right now.

  3. Visit the FEMA Social HUB for updates from official emergency management social media accounts.
