Governor Rick Scott Requests a Major Disaster Declaration for Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties

Governor Rick Scott today requested President Barack Obama issue a major disaster declaration for Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties due to the severe storms and flooding that impacted communities in the Panhandle. This declaration would help bring additional resources to support recovery efforts.

Governor Scott said, “We must do everything we can to ensure that these families can get back on their feet, and this declaration would support those efforts. I look forward to going back to the Panhandle later this week to further assess the progress of recovery operations.”
