On the forecast track the center of Hermine will move across coastal South Carolina later today, move over coastal North Carolina tonight, and move offshore of the North Carolina coast on Saturday.”
Contact 844-FMIT-CAT (844-364-8228) to be connected directly to our FMIT Property CAT Team for assistance with Reporting Damages and to Report Damages.
Although FEMA has been instructing cities/towns to wait on them for Damage Assessments, that only applies to reporting damages back to County and State and NOT for insurance purposes.
FMIT Members need to contact FMIT as soon as possible as Ride Out teams have been stationed in affected areas today to assist with damage assessments that help identify if insurance is applicable. FEMA is not a first responder. Insurance has first responsibility if coverage and covered peril exist.
