Indianapolis, IN -- Federal officials have announced that the Dubois County Disaster Recovery Center will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. this coming Friday, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. The center will close at the end of business on Tuesday, July 9.
Located in the Southwest Dubois County Schools building at 113 N.

After having called FEMA to apply for assistance, disaster victims may visit the Dubois Disaster Recovery Center or call the numbers above for answers to any disaster-related questions or to follow up on application status. Those numbers will be available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday thru Saturday, except for Thursday, July 4, until further notice.
