Seminole County Emergency Manager Alan Harris said FEMA turned on transitional shelter assistance, which provides hotel and other assistance for people who have been displaced because of the storm. Harris said the service helps place people in extended stay housing, or with rental assistance.
County residents are also eligible for FEMA individual assistance and SBA bridge loans. Go to the Seminole County website for more information.
Harris said flooding continues to go up in parts of the county. Floodwaters are starting to recede around Lake Harney, but Lake Jesup is expected to crest Wednesday, and Lake Monroe is not due to crest either Thursday or Friday.
