I have been moved by the selflessness and generosity displayed by Floridians this week, whether they were helping each other board up their houses, giving each other food and water, or just comforting each other throughout these difficult times. I truly believe we are at our best when we come together, working hand in hand to help each other in times of crisis.

If you are in need of assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office. You can also find additional resources here. Throughout the week we were able to secure individual FEMA assistance for all 3 of our counties (click here for more on how to apply). As a result, small businesses in our community are eligible for support from the Small Business Administration and families are eligible for relief from the IRS.

I have also been closely tracking power outages and advocating for getting the power turned back on as quickly as possible. For the most up to date information, click here if your power is through Florida Power & Light and click here if your power is through Fort Pierce Utilities Authority.

If there is anything else I can do to help, please do not hesitate to ask!
