“Within the past three years, Florida has been directly impacted by several hurricanes that have caused severe financial and physical damage to our communities,” Rubio said. “While Florida was fortunate that the path of Hurricane Dorian veered away from the peninsula of Florida, our communities heeded FEMA’s advice and incurred significant costs making the necessary preparations, and our beaches still experienced damages from the effects of Dorian. This assistance will further help to assist local communities and prepare for future storms.”
