MEXICO BEACH, Fla. — Federal aid is heading to Mexico Beach.
F.E.MA. is sending almost $27 million to the city as reimbursement for debris removal after Hurricane Michael.

According to officials in Mexico Beach, the total cost of the recovery efforts is around $233 million.
So far, they’ve been reimbursed for around $8.3 million, not including the recent funds from the governor, and $4.2 million donated to the area.
