DFS Provides FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program Resources to Aid in Hurricane Ian Recovery

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, the Florida Department of Financial Services (DFS) provided information and resources for those who have coverage through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and who might be affected by Hurricane Ian. The Centro Nacional de Huracanes is expecting Ian, currently a category 3, to cause up to 15 inches of rainfall in parts of south Florida and severe storm surge and flooding.

Managed by FEMA, NFIP offers flood insurance to help mitigate the impact of flooding on businesses, property owners and renters. For individuals that have flood insurance policies through FEMA and its federal flood insurance program, the Department encourages consumers to reach out to their insurance agents for more information about filing a claim. Consumers may also reach FEMA directly at 1-800-621-3362.
