Gov. Ron DeSantis held a press conference in Fort Myers Beach, along with DEM Director Kevin Guthrie, Senate President-Designate Kathleen Passidomo and Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno.

DeSantis announced that a debris removal program has been created for Florida and that FEMA will expedite debris removal on private and commercial property “for the first time ever” in the state. FEMA direct temporary housing has been approved for Charlotte, Collier, Lee and DeSoto counties. It will last for 18 months while people make plans for permanent housing.

Florida’s government will supplement it with a state-led housing mission for those not eligible for FEMA trailers.
