Lake City Residents Waiting for Relief After Debby
Many Lake City residents are waiting for help to arrive after a disaster declaration was made for several North Florida counties.
For Dianna Hall, getting around has been difficult, but what's been harder is getting floodwaters to leave her neighborhood.
Her neighbors say they need help before they can get back to normal.
Hall has been living in her home for a little more than a month and a half.
After Tropical Storm Debby her home is without air conditioning, an intact roof and a fully functioning septic system.'
She says she has no place to go if things get worse, "I'm a single mom... I can't afford it, every dime goes towards providing for the children."
FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) representatives plan on opening a disaster recovery center in Lake City soon.
Grants, low interest loans, unemployment payments and other relief programs will be offered.
Columbia County will continue spraying for mosquitoes each night.
Contact FEMA at 1-800-3362 (FEMA).
