FRANKFORT, Ky. ?-- The Disaster Recovery Centers in Jefferson and Hardin counties will close permanently on Friday, June 3 at 7 p.m., officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency announced today.
The centers will support residents through the end of the day on Friday. Residents affected by the severe storms, tornadoes and flooding from April 22 to May 20 can visit the centers to meet face-to-face with a FEMA recovery specialist, ask questions about their disaster application, meet with representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration, and learn about ways to rebuild to prevent future disaster losses.
“I encourage anyone with questions about disaster assistance to take advantage of these centers in the next week,” said Federal Coordinating Officer Steve Ward. “Even after the centers close, FEMA will continue working to ensure affected Kentuckians get the help they need to recover.”
After the centers close, individuals with questions can contact the FEMA helpline at 800-621-3362 or TTY 800-462-7585 for who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired.
FEMA's mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
