Remember: The deadline to file for FEMA individual assistance is Nov. 9. This can be done online at DisasterAssistance.gov.
There also are four FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers in the Keys to help people register for individual assistance or get updates on their accounts. Two of the centers, in Marathon and Key West, have relocated. Here are the current locations.
MARATHON: 6805 Overseas Highway
ISLAMORADA: Fire Station #20, 81850 Overseas Hwy
BIG PINE KEY: Big Pine Key Community Park, 31009 Atlantis Dr.
KEY WEST: 3126 Flagler Ave
These centers offer in-person support to individuals and small businesses. Recovery specialists from FEMA, the U.S. Small Business Administration and the state of Florida are available to provide assistance with filling out applications or updating their status.
Disaster Recovery Centers all operate from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
There are also three FEMA disaster mobile teams that are canvassing neighborhoods in the Keys today.
These mobile teams carry iPads and can register survivors for FEMA assistance for the first time at their doorstep. They have limited ability to help people update their accounts. Please Note: Mobile teams will wear FEMA vests, have proper identification and never ask for money.
These locations vary each day. Today, Oct. 19, there are two teams in Key Largo and one on Stock Island. One soon will be going to Summerland Key. These teams operate from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
