Was if you already were receiving FS and you lived in one of the counties that was declared a disaster area you received the additional FS. If you were not already receiving them but your income was affected due to the storm you could apply and have it expedited so that you could receive the assistance asap. If your income exceeded the normal guidelines and you did not experience a loss of income related to the storm you did not qualify regardless of how you were affected. My aunts home was completely destroyed by an F4/F5 tornado but due to their income they we're not offered anything (which I agree was the right thing to happen).
I say all this just to say that this is in addition to what they already receive and they aren't just going to give them to any and everyone. . You still have to go through some of the normal procedures and meet their guidelines. Despite that there will be some who will live in one of the counties declared a disaster area who will receive the assistance even though they sustained NO damage... there's always those who will take advantage of the loopholes.
