FEMA Teams Visiting Beaufort County

FEMAworkers began going door to door in Beaufort county to check on hurricane victims and see if they need any additional assistance.

Two FEMA workers knocked on Connie Martin's door. A tree fell on her home in the Core Point community leaving utter devastation. On top of that her home flooded. She is now living in a camper beside the house. She told the FEMA workers she did have insurance and already applied for FEMA aid, but says she appreciates them stopping by just to make sure.

"It's hard. I still cry just about every day... a lot of memories," said Martin.

FEMA workers plan to continue to reach out to people across Beaufort County for the next few days and say people can still apply for FEMA aid by phone or online.

    I don't know what FEMA's doing for anyone? I lost everything, my business and my home and they told me I am NOT getting any help from the at all. I had no insurance! I thought they were there to help the people, but so far I haven't seen any help in this area.

    I think that people who have not even had any damage are getting free ice, tarps, etc. Do you really check it out?? My husband and I have been waiting forever just for some kind of answer. We cannot live in our home.

    I hope they verify the damage and don't hand out money to those that don't need it like they have the free food and free motel rooms.
