The Federal Emergency Management Agency—or FEMA—has been in the Metro Detroit area since August, surveying property damage after torrential rain flooded much of the area. The original deadline to apply for assistance has passed, but time is running out for residents to apply for funds to replace or repair property. Ray Perez is a spokesperson for FEMA. He tells WDET’s J. Carlisle Larsen that the deadline is December 14th.


Residents can file for assistance by calling 1-800-621-3362 or going online to: www.DisasterAssistance.gov.
