SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The New Braunfels and Seguin Disaster Recovery Centers (DRC) will close at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 19 due to a decline in the number of daily visits, according to Ed Laundy, Texas Division of Emergency Management's State Coordinating Officer.
"The closing of the centers does not diminish the assistance we can provide to the victims," said Laundy. "However, the deadline for applying for disaster assistance for Comal and Guadalupe County residents is Monday, Dec. 21 at 6 p.m., and there is no extension planned after that final date."
