FEMA opens disaster recovery center for flooding victims in Harrison Co., Ind.
Flooding victims are encouraged to visit the center for federal assistance.
CORYDON, Ind. (WDRB) -- A disaster recovery center is now open in Harrison County, Indiana for victims of recent floods.
The FEMA disaster recovery center was set up to help people struggling with severe flood damage. It's located inside the government building on Atwood Street in Corydon.
But it will only be open for three days.
Many rural and residential areas in Harrison County were devastated by flooding in late February and early March. On Thursday, FEMA officials from the recovery center were assessing damage in affected areas to find people who may need federal assistance.
Flooding victims are encouraged to visit the center for federal assistance. Officials will want a social security card, proof of insurance, if you have it, the address of where the damage occurred, and the current address.
It's very important for flooding victims to register before the deadline.
“The registration process opens up a lot of doors to different kinds of assistance," said FEMA spokesperson Jann Tracey. "So the very first thing, the bottom line is that you have to register.”
The recovery center in Corydon will be open from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. It will close on Saturday.
People who cannot make it to the recovery center in Corydon before Saturday can visit the recovery center in Utica that will remain open until July 4.
The deadline to register for assistance is July 5, 2018. To apply online head to: https://www.fema.gov/disaster/4363.
