Floridians with policies through the National Flood Insurance Program will have 30 additional days to file claims resulting from Hurricane Hermine. 2016 FEMA Officials indicated that Hurricane Hermine caused significant widespread flooding in impacted areas of Florida and the 30 day extension was needed to ease any undue burden on policyholders.   More information is available by calling the FEMA helpline at 1-800-621-3362 or the website at
