Many still waiting for roof repair help 8 months after Hurricane Irma

Blue tarps are still covering Cheryl Wessel’s house in Fort Myers, eight months after her roof was ripped apart by Hurricane Irma. Unfortunately, Wessel said that she no longer has home owner’s insurance, but calls FEMA every couple of weeks to see if they can help her fix her roof. “All they say is ‘we’re backed up, and we’re sorry,'” Wessel said. FEMA told Fox 4 that they are not a replacement for insurance. 211.org may help navigate to aid resources beyond federal assistance.
