From the Introduction: "On September 28, 2022 Hurricane Ian made landfall as a Category 4 [hyperlink] major hurricane near Cayo Costa, Florida. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the storm has caused an extremely dangerous storm surge, winds, and flooding across the Florida Peninsula, and later, the South Carolina coast [hyperlink]. On September 25, 2022, President Joseph R. Biden issued an emergency declaration [hyperlink] for Florida under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (the Stafford Act, P.L. 93-288, as amended; 42 U.S.C. §§5121 et seq. [hyperlink]) to support state and local efforts to save lives, protect property, and avert the incident from becoming a major disaster. On September 29, 2022, the President signed a major disaster declaration [hyperlink] for the incident and authorized a suite of disaster assistance programs, including Individual Assistance [hyperlink], Public Assistance [hyperlink], and Hazard Mitigation Assistance [hyperlink]. Several counties have been authorized to receive Individual Assistance and Public Assistance--Category A (debris removal [hyperlink]), and even more have been authorized to receive Public Assistance--Category B (emergency protective measures [hyperlink].) The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program [hyperlink] (HMGP) has been made available statewide. The situation in Florida is still dynamic; additional declarations for other counties and designated areas (or additional forms of assistance for existing declarations) may be forthcoming if the President determines that federal assistance is necessary to support state and local recovery. Later that same day, the President additionally authorized an emergency declaration [hyperlink] for South Carolina under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (the Stafford Act, P.L. 93-288, as amended; 42 U.S.C. §§5121 et seq. [hyperlink])."
