CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. -- The Operation Blue Roof program in Port Charlotte will be closed at 6 p.m. on October 3.

Operation Blue Roof is based at Lowes Home Improvement in Port Charlotte and is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. 

This is a free service to homeowners with homes that are primary residences or permanently occupied rental properties. 

Charlotte County will resume distributing free tarps starting on October 7 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Charlotte County Administration Center at 18500 Murdock Circle in Port Charlotte. 

Each vehicle may receive two 20-foot-by-25-foot tarps to homeowners who have sustained less than 50 percent of structural damage to their roofs. 

Tarps will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until they are gone.
