More Florida residents are now eligible for Federal Assistance following Hurricane Hermine. Officials expanded their coverage zone to include two more North Florida Counties.

Taylor and Wakulla Counties are now included under The Federal Emergency management Agency’s individual aid program.

Initially, FEMA officials had approved individual aid for just eight counties including Leon.

The change mean homeowners, renters and business owners in those areas may now apply for federal disaster assistance for uninsured and underinsured damages and losses caused by Hermine.
