The tornado that touched down in Kathleen on October 18 left a path of destruction that many are working clean up.
If you, your family or friends were affected, United Way of Central Florida has compiled a list of resources to help with the recovery process and keep victims safe.
Because the tornado was not classified as a catastrophic event, our community does not qualify for federal or state funding. Some companies may qualify for Small Business Association loans, but that is the only anticipated government support. The community will depend solely on private support.
The Florida Attorney General’s Office of Citizen Services serves as the initial point-of-contact for consumer complaints, Lemon Law complaints, Medicaid Provider Fraud complaints and general inquiries.
A complaint can also be filed with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which acts as the State’s consumer complaint clearinghouse, at www.floridaconsumerhelp.com

Join a town hall discussion on tornado recovery efforts on Thursday, Nov. 7 at Mt. Tabor Baptist Church, located at 3504 Mt Tabor Rd. in Lakeland, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. A food pantry will be open to serve those in need.
