ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. – Disaster Recovery Centers are open six days a week in 10 counties to help North Carolinians who suffered losses and damages as a result of the severe storms and flooding from Tropical Storm Nicole in late September.

Hours this week are 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday at locations in Beaufort, Bertie, Brunswick, Craven, Hertford, Jones, Onslow, Pender, Pitt and Tyrrell counties. All are closed on Sunday.

The centers are staffed by the North Carolina Division of Emergency Management (NCEM), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

Applicants for disaster assistance can register online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov. They also can call 800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY 800-462-7585. Multilingual operators are available to assist with the process.

Once registered, staff at the centers can check the status of an individual’s application, answer questions about an application for assistance or review information needed to process it. Federal and state recovery specialists also can supply contacts for other programs that may be able to help. SBA representatives can answer questions and help with loan applications.
