More help is coming to the Panhandle, with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarding the areas devastated by Hurricane Michael an additional $34 million in recovery funds.
The additional funds brings the total for the week up to $87 million. With this money, Northwest Florida can begin to remove, renovate and rebuild the destruction that was left by the Category 5 storm.
Panama City, one of the hardest hit areas in the Panhandle, was awarded $2,483,882, which is the remaining half of an expedited project’s funding, to Panama City for the costs of emergency protective measures following Hurricane Michael under the FEMA Public Assistance Program.
