Harvey 6 Months Later

It has now been six months since Hurricane Harvey made its way through Southeast Texas, dumping record amounts of rainfall on the region. As we’ve previously reported - from Friday, August 25, through Wednesday, August 30 - Harvey dumped a total of 41.75 inches of rain on the City of Liberty. Since Hurricane Harvey moved through Texas, 893,557 households in the 41 counties affected by the storm have registered for disaster assistance. As of last Friday, FEMA has distributed more than $1.56 billion of aid in the Lone Star State. In addition to the damage to private property, Liberty County Emergency Managmenet Coordinator Tom Branch said repairs continue on a number of the county’s roads and bridges. 
Again, Hurricane Harvey moved through Southeast Texas six months ago, and here in Liberty County there are now 10,610 FEMA registrants. Not all of those claims have been processed, but so far, FEMA has approved a total of $28,354,290 in disaster assistance for those here in just Liberty County. In Chambers County, there are a total of 6,081 registrations, and FEMA has approved $25.1 million in assistance there.
