VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. —

Navy officials say they will begin providing compensation right away to those affected by Friday's military jet crash into a Virginia Beach apartment complex.

The Navy said Sunday in a news release that officials met on Saturday with affected residents and would begin making funds available Monday to those who completed claims.

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

Navy representatives will have an information center at the apartment site from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. this week. Residents won't be permitted onto the site until the cleanup is complete, but should talk with on-site fire officials about valuables.

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