Event: Hurricane Charley Damage in Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, Florida

Subject Description: Visit of Secretary Alphonso Jackson to the Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, Florida area, where he viewed damage from Hurricane Charley and joined Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the Reverend Franklin Graham, and other dignitaries at the First Baptist Church in Port Charlotte to discuss disaster assistance measures. Among the HUD measures were the granting of a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures and forebearance of foreclosures of Federal Housing Administration-insured homes; HUD work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to identify vacant multi-family housing units, public housing units, and HUD-owned homes that could be used as temporary housing for citizens forced from their homes due to storm damage; and the release of $40 million to be made available to rebuild public housing in hard-hit areas under the jurisdiction of the Arcadia, Lake Wales, and Punta Gorda Housing Authorities.

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives and Defense Visual Information Distribution Service. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides a connection between world media and the American military personnel serving at home and abroad. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
