Some of the services they can help with include:

  • Cutting up fallen trees
  • Drywall, flooring and appliance removal to curb
  • Tarping Roofs
  • Debris removal to curb
  • Mold mitigation

The county says it cannot guarantee that you will be helped due to the number of people who are in need of assistance. The help hotline will remain open until October 28.

You can also report any damage you see directly to Charlotte County to help the county assess how much damage there is.
