Hurricane Relief
Edius 1
Anchor Lead
It’s been more than a week since Hurricane Sally ravaged the Florida panhandle. While President Trump declared a Major Disaster, the order only reimburses local governments, not affected residents. As Jake Stofan tells us the process has been slow and residents say it should be a warning to other Floridians who may be impacted by future storms.

Damage estimates from Hurricane Sally range from two to $10 billion for the Gulf Coast.
Hurricane Relief PACKAGE
This is the scene in Holly Rose’s neighborhood, just outside of Pensacola.
SOT Holly Rose
Bristol Woods Neighborhood, Cantonment FL
“We started doing sandbags, trying to stop the water from coming in, which was a pointless effort.”
She and her neighbor Wayne didn’t have flood insurance.
SOT Wayne Quarrier
Bristol Woods Neighborhood, Cantonment FL
“This neighborhood unfortunately has never been declared a flood zone.”
Any help recovering will likely have to come from the federal government.
SOT Holly Rose
Bristol Woods Neighborhood, Cantonment FL
“I mean my family won’t have a home if FEMA doesn’t step in.”
Normally after a disaster FEMA arrives to assess the damage.
If it’s bad enough, it grants individual assistance to help victims recover.
But State Senator Doug Broxson says the pandemic has complicated things.
SOT Senator Doug Broxson
(R) Pensacola
“Even FEMA [is] trying to do things remotely.”
The small FEMA team that did come out determined there wasn’t enough damage.
Now the local governments are having to collect their own evidence to prove the damage warrants extra aid.
SOT Senator Doug Broxson
(R) Pensacola
“What we’ve got to do is people to bombard the counties with information so that we can improve our application to FEMA.”
Stand Up
“The Governor in a release Thursday said the state is conducting damage assessments and is continuing to work with FEMA to get individuals the help they need.”
But Holly and Wayne are skeptical help is on the horizon.
They say Floridians best bet in any future storm is insurance… not federal aid.
SOT Holly Rose
Bristol Woods Neighborhood, Cantonment FL
“Don’t rely on anyone to step up and help even when they’re supposed to.”
And the Senator told us he’s doubtful much if any help will be coming from the state, which has seen more than $2 billion in lost revenues due to the pandemic.

PPP Problems
Edius 1
Despite repeated calls from news organizations and the GOP, the Florida Democratic party has so far refused to release its Payroll Protection Program loan application. Political parties were specifically excluded from PPP loans, but Democrats got at least $780,000 dollars, and as Mike Vasilinda tells us, the GOP now wants the Small Business Administration to release the information.

Anchor tag: In documents, Democrats show repaying the money to a different bank than the one that issued the loan. We asked the SBA for status of the loan. We didn’t hear back. We also asked the Florida Democratic Party why it isn’t releasing the application and also did not hear back from them.

“How did all that taxpayer cash flow to Democrat campaigns?”
This ad began running on the Fox News Channel locally n the Washington DC area this week.

“political parties can’t take PPP money.”
I will run again tonight.
“Florida Democrats won’t release their PPP application, but the Small Business Administration can.”
Former Green Beret and now Florida Congressman Michael Waltz says he and others are also pushing for the applications release.
Sot: Rep. Michael Waltz
R-Palm Coast
“Who filled out the application, who circumvented the law?”
Mike Vasilinda Standup
“This week we asked Nikki Fried, the lone Democrat elected statewide , whether or not that application should be released.”
While not specifically responding, she did say:
Sot: Nikki Fried
FL Ag Commissioner (D)
“”I do feel satisfied with the information that has been given to me.”
Fried also calls the push for information:
Sot: Nikki Fried
FL Ag Commissioner (D)
“Political tactics being used by the Republican Party, and that’s all that it is at this point.”
Sot: Rep. Michael Waltz
R-Palm Coast
“Apparently it went through a building fund.”
Nat Sot of ad
“The building fund has no employees. So Democrats listed Democratic Party employees, all of which would be illegal.”
Sot: Rep. Michael Waltz
R-Palm Coast
“I’m certain that if Nikki Fried would be demanding the same if a Republican political entity had done the same. Bottom line is, there needs to be accountability and there needs to be transparency.”
There are also calls for an investigation by Small Business Administration into the loan and whether or not its actually ben repaid as Democrats claim.

“Normally after a disaster FEMA arrives to assess the damage. If it’s bad enough, it grants individual assistance to help under and uninsured victims recover. That hasn’t happened with Hurricane Sally. Instead, the local governments are now having to collect their own evidence to prove the damage warrants extra aid.”
State Senator Doug Broxson says the pandemic has complicated things.
SOT Senator Doug Broxson
(R) Pensacola
“Like most communities we’re kind of exhausted with the COVID dilemma. We’re exhausted with a surprise storm. And now we’ve been told that the burden is on the citizenry to prosecute their own ability to deal with the federal government. And that’s a new wrinkle that we’ll do and hopefully we can do it in time, but it is a problem.”
Look Live Out
“And the Senator told us he’s doubtful much if any help will be coming from the state, which has seen more than $2 billion in lost revenues due to the pandemic.”
