VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Navy officials are starting to provide compensation to those affected when a military jet crashed into a Virginia Beach apartment complex.

Navy representatives opened a legal office at the Virginia Beach Law Enforcement Training Academy on Monday for affected residents to drop off forms and pick up their checks.

Initial payments start at $2,300 for an individual resident, with more going to residents with families.

Residents aren’t being permitted back into the apartment complex until the cleanup is complete, but should talk with on-site fire officials about valuables. Residents’ towed cars were available for pickup Monday.

Dozens of apartment units were destroyed when the F/A-18D Hornet careened into the Mayfair Mews apartment complex, but no one died.
