You can register with FEMA either online at, or by calling (800) 621-FEMA (3362). Agents are available seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. From your smartphone or tablet, use

When applying for aid, you will receive a nine-digit registration number that can be used for reference when corresponding with FEMA.

▪ A general list of damages and losses
▪ If insured, the name of insurance company, agent and policy number

Obamacare? Get over it. He won the election. Try heading to the coast and help people that could use it. Put the politics away for at least a day and DO something productive to help out

Why are you bothering to give these people false hope and waste time that could be put to better use getting their lives back in order? FEMA is pathetic - proof that government can’t do much of anything. Can’t wait to see Obamacare...
