CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – Clay County residents are still cleaning up and looking for help, one week after Hurricane Irma blew through our area.

The county is holding an event tonight for people who still need questions answered. They'll get a chance, Friday night, to get some assistance all under one roof.

There will be several agencies available for folks to talk to. FEMA will be on hand to help answer any questions residents might have on the registration process.

The health department will be there talking about mold exposure and testing wells- an important step after all the flooding across parts of the county.

Anyone with questions on the process or getting back into homes can talk to building department representatives

Representatives from mosquito control, contractors, and county commissioners will all be at the event.

Homeowners and small business owners can work with the development center on ways to recover as well.

Clay County residents who have any unmet needs other than electricity—are asked to contact the call center at 904-284-7703 between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Food and other supplies will also be available.

The recovery resource event is Friday evening from 4-7 p.m. at the Middleburg Civic Association on Palmetto Street.
