FEMA Individual Assistance
Although there was considerable tree and property damage to private property during the last ice storm, FEMA did not allow for Individual Assistance for that event. In order for FEMA to provide IA to a state or county, there must be a minimum value of loss within the affected area. Only damage to the primary residence is considered in the calculation for the IA damage, which is why there was not adequate damage to individual residences to qualify for FEMA assistance.
For those who do not have the physical ability to remove downed limbs, you may wish to contact your local volunteer organizations for assistance. Some organizations, such as churches and boy scout groups, may be able to assist you in the debris cleanup.
REMEMBER: It is not legal to burn debris in a floodplain or in a ravine/stream channel that leads to a floodplain.
