BISMARCK, N.D. – As North Dakota residents continue cleanup and recovery efforts following the spring floods, Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) will open this week in Berthold and Valley City, and close in Sherwood.
The Berthold DRC will be open from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Aug. 15 and remain open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Aug. 17. The location is in the Berthold High School, 401 Fourth Avenue NE. Valley City’s DRC will operate from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 17 through Aug. 22 at the Barnes County Courthouse, 230 Fourth St. NW.
The DRC in Sherwood will close at 7 p.m. Aug. 18. All DRCs are closed on Sundays.
DRCs are open to provide disaster assistance to North Dakota residents who have been affected by the spring flooding. They are open for residents who like to speak one-on-one to recovery representatives. However, it’s not necessary to visit a center to receive disaster assistance. The fastest way to register is by calling 1-800-621-3362 (TTY 1-800-462-7585) between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. (CDT) daily or going online at www.fema.gov or www.disasterassistance.gov, or by smart phone at m.fema.gov.
