SOMERSET, N.J. -- Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) in Burlington, Cumberland, Ocean, and Somerset counties will close at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 11, but flood survivors can continue to register for, or receive additional information on federal assistance though a variety of ways.

"As long as there is a need, FEMA will continue to assist survivors of the March floods," said William L. Vogel, federal coordinating officer with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. "With the deadline to apply for assistance extended to July 1, we urge flood survivors who have not yet registered to delay no longer – take charge of your recovery and register now."

Flood survivors can register for aid or follow up on their applications by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362), or TTY 1-800-462-7585 for people who are deaf, hard of hearing and/or have speech disabilities (for relay service, call 711 or 1-800-852-7897) between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., seven days a week. Multi-lingual operators are available. Flood survivors may also register online anytime at www.disasterassistance.gov.

They may also visit any of the DRCs that remain open until close of business June 11. Their locations are available through the helpline, or at https://asd.fema.gov/inter/locator/drcLocator.jsp
