Emergency Declaration in Florida Due to Hurricane Isaias
On August 1, the president declared a state of emergency in Florida in relation to the conditions wrought by Hurricane Isaias, which began on July 31. As such, Federal assistance – in conjunction with the state’s response efforts – were ordered. The State of Florida sees more than its fair share of dangerous storms and hurricanes, and if your home or property has been damaged in Hurricane Isaias, don’t put off consulting with a Panama City Insurance Claim liability lawyer – recovering the compensation you need to make repairs is too important to wait.
The Details of the Declaration
This president’s action authorizes the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to coordinate all relief efforts that are trained on alleviating the storm’s adverse effects and the suffering borne by local citizens. Additionally, its intent is to accomplish all of the following:
- To provide appropriate aid for emergency measures as they are required to save lives, to protect private and public property, and to promote the health and safety of the public.
- To diminish or avoid catastrophic effects in Brevard, Broward, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Indian River, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Nassau, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Putnam, Seminole, St. Johns, St Lucie, and Volusia counties.
Further, FEMA has the authority to implement all of the following actions:
- To identify, mobilize, and provide all necessary equipment and resources in the alleviation of storm-related damage (at the Agency’s discretion)
- To provide emergency protective measures – limited to federal aid that directly reimburses the state for care en masse, including the provision of support for both evacuations and shelter, which will be allotted at 75 percent Federal funding

Hurricanes Cause Serious Property Damage
The high winds and wind-driven rain and stormwater associated with hurricanes like Isaias can cause property damage that is catastrophic in nature. The wind alone can rip buildings and homes completely apart, and the force of the moving stormwater can collapse buildings where they stand. If your home and/or other property has been damaged by a hurricane, the last thing you probably want to do is add another item to your To-Do list, but obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled is critical to your ability to move forward. While you tend to the important business of restructuring your family’s life post-hurricane, your dedicated insurance claim liability attorney will aggressively advocate on behalf of your most favorable claim resolution.
