Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink today announced that the state storm line has been activated to assist Floridians whose homes, businesses or vehicles were damaged by Tropical Storm Claudette as it passed through the Gulf and into the Florida Panhandle.

Florida residents who have questions or need help filing a claim can call CFO Sink’s Storm Line at 1-800-22-STORM.

“The first step to recovery is knowing where to find help, and our insurance specialists are available to help storm victims contact insurance companies and file claims,” said CFO Sink. “Our goal is to help residents rebuild as quickly as possible.”
