Federal Aid Approved for Lee, Moore, and Wake Counties

Governor McCrory Announces Federal Aid Approved for Lee, Moore and Wake Counties

Raleigh, N.C.
Governor Pat McCrory this afternoon received a federal disaster declaration to help local governments and individuals in Lee, Moore and Wake Counties recover from the massive flooding caused by Hurricane Matthew.
“Providing much needed assistance to families and businesses in Lee, Moore and Wake counties is another important step forward in the recovery process,” said Governor McCrory. “I appreciate our federal partners approving this important assistance the help those who are suffering to begin rebuilding their lives.” 
With the addition of these three counties, 31 counties have now been approved for federal individual and public assistance and 9 counties have been approved for public assistance only. As joint preliminary damage assessments continue, the governor said he is hopeful that other counties will meet the federal criteria for a disaster declaration.  
Since the Expedited Major Disaster Declaration on October 10, the federal government has disbursed more than $41 million to disaster survivors through the Individual Assistance Program. To date, more than 52,000 North Carolinians have already registered for this assistance.
The governor encouraged individuals and groups to help in the relief efforts by making a financial or other contribution. Monetary contributions to the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund for Hurricane Matthew can be made by texting NCRECOVERS to 30306 or by visitingNCDisasterRelief.org. This is one of the best ways to help fund long-term recovery efforts.

Reminder - Lee County Health Department Distributing Zika Virus Prevention Kits

Lee County Health Department Distributing Zika Virus Prevention Kits

With standing water remaining an issue after hurricane Matthew, everyone should take precautions to protect against mosquito bites. Although the Zika Virus is not being locally transmitted in North Carolina, prevention efforts should start now.

The Lee County Health Department has Zika Virus Prevention Kits available for county residents. Residents may pick up the kits at the Lee County Health Department (106 Hillcrest Drive, 2nd Floor), Lee County Environmental Health (115 Chatham Street), and the Lee County Animal Shelter (1450 North Horner Boulevard). The kits are being distributed on a first come, first serve basis and contain one Mosquito Dunk.  Kits also have educational information regarding the proper use of the Mosquito Dunk, along with methods to prevent mosquito-borne diseases.  A Mosquito Dunk is a donut-shaped disc that is inserted into a standing water source, where it floats on the surface and slowly releases a special bacterium, which mosquito larvae eat. This bacterium kills mosquito larvae of all known mosquito species, but is non-toxic to humans, animals, birds, frogs, fish, birds and other animals.

For more information, please contact the Lee County Health Department at (919) 718-4640.
