AUSTIN, Texas -- Disaster victims displaced by Hurricane Katrina who are now in Texas are urged to register for federal assistance by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) . This call to the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will start the process with federal and state programs designed to assist in your recovery. Registering with other agencies -- such as the American Red Cross or your county emergency management office -- will not connect you with FEMA.
