In Dallas May 4 through June 19 many of us suffered home and property damages as a result of storms, high winds and flooding. It was so bad around here that the U.S. government declared Dallas County an official disaster area. The silver lining to this is that Dallas residents are eligible for assistance. Those impacted by the weather can check FEMA’s disaster assistance website to learn more about what you might qualify for. Just plug in your address, answer a few questions, and see the possibilities.
