RALEIGH, N.C. -- Disaster Recovery Centers in North Carolina counties continue full service six days a week to help North Carolinians who suffered losses and damage as a result of April’s severe storms, tornadoes and flooding.

 “As of this weekend, the centers will no longer be open on Sundays,” said Doug Hoell, the state’s Director of Emergency Management. “However, the massive job of helping North Carolinians rebuild and recover will continue.”

In-person help continues to be available Monday through Saturday – 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Survivors can find the closest center by using the online disaster recovery center locator at http://go.usa.gov/CDc.

The centers are staffed by North Carolina Emergency Management along with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Before going to a center, people with storm losses should register with FEMA online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling 800-621-FEMA (3362). Those with speech or hearing impairment may call TTY 800-462-7585. Help is available in most languages. Help is available at the disaster recovery centers for all storm survivors.

Persons affected by the storms can also apply for federal assistance directly through a web-enabled mobile device or smartphone. Visit m.fema.gov
