Rep. Soto Announces Federal Funds to Help Florida Communities Recover from Hurricane Dorian

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Darren Soto (FL-09) announced a Major Disaster Declaration for the State of Florida triggering the release of Federal funds to help eligible communities, like Osceola County, recover from Hurricane Dorian.

 

“Hurricane Dorian posed an incredible risk to the people of Osceola County,” said Rep. Soto. “Rightly so, our county deployed a comprehensive readiness strategy to save lives.
