Local leaders continue to push for “individual assistance” from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for victims of Hurricane Sally.
Pensacola Mayor Grover Robinson said Monday at his weekly press conference that the city has teamed up with the County of Escambia to collect photos and stories of damage from citizens.
Along with state representative Alex Andrade and Senator Doug Brooksson, they also wrote a letter to the President, requesting their case for individual assistance.
Mayor Robinson said, “Certainly a storm of this magnitude in the past, we would always have been able to have that. We understand that there are challenges with COVID, this year. But again, when you look at what happened to these people with COVID there already, it was People’s budgets are incredibly small. “
Over the weekend, city employees went to the neighborhoods, trying to document stories of people without internet.
If you have damage, you are required to send photos and a brief description of what happened to Hurricanesally@myescambia.com.
