ATLANTA – Six Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) will close permanently at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 19, disaster officials announced today. Applicants with questions may still call the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) toll-free helpline and access information via the Internet and mobile devices.  They may also visit any of the DRCs that continue to operate after Thursday.
