CHARLESTON, Pa. -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) teleregistration operation will be shortened beginning this weekend.
FEMA's telephone registration system will now operate 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Both the registration line and the agency's Helpline will be closed on Sundays.
"Because of the early success of the teleregistration process, the need for Sunday registration has declined. Anyone who suffered damages due to the Feb. 18 severe storms, landslides and flash flooding can still apply Monday through Saturday, 8 A.M. to 6 P.M," according to FEMA's federal coordinating officer, Justo Hernandez.
The teleregistration toll-free number is 1-800-462-9029. Those with hearing or speech impairments should dial (TTY) 1-800-462-7585.
At the close of business Monday, a total of 1,163 registrations for storm-related disaster aid had been received from individuals in 25 West Virginia counties eligible for individual assistance.
