| Henk Ovink, the world's only water ambassador, was in Washington, DC recently to talk about
eastern North Carolina and recommendations for flood relief design. Check out the video for
more on Mr. Ovink's ideas for reducing or eliminating storm surge and flooding
during future hurricanes.
Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr issued the following statement regarding North Carolinians who are applying for federal disaster assistance:
“We’ve recently heard stories of North Carolinians who were denied federal assistance for losses associated with Hurricane Florence. Our offices are now requesting additional information from FEMA and local officials to get a better sense of specifics surrounding these reported cases. While not every North Carolinian who suffered property damage will be eligible for federal assistance, we want to make sure everyone who is eligible for assistance receives it. We encourage any North Carolinian having issues with their application for federal assistance to contact our offices by calling 704-509-9087 (Tillis) or 336-631-5125 (Burr).”
