The Federal Emergency Management Agency is asking thousands of Floridians to give return more than $27 million in hurricane aid paid out in the wake of the four storms that hit the state last year. The Ft. Myers News Press learned of the 6,579 repayment requests through a Freedom of Information Act suit for records of alleged overpayments. FEMA said many of the payback demands stemmed from private insurers ultimately compensating the victims. (7-4-05)
