As a result, Palm Beach County has been included in a FEMA Major Disaster Declaration, triggering the release of Federal funds to help people and communities recover from Hurricane Irma.

Residents with losses due to Hurricane Irma in Palm Beach County may now register for disaster assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Individuals can register online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov.
