BARTOW – Shanteria Flowers’ house in Fort Meade had about $6,000 damage to the roof and she lost her son’s trampoline when Hurricane Irma ripped through Polk County Sept. 11.

“The roof tore off. I lost my son’s trampoline, a piece of the metal roof is gone and it leaks,” she said, as she waited in line at the FEMA Disaster Recovery Center in Bartow. “I was told (by insurance) it was about $6,000 in damage, and they gave me $2,600. It was because of my deductible. I can’t afford that.”
