NEPTUNE, N.J. – Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) in four New Jersey counties battered by Hurricane Irene will close Wednesday, Nov. 16, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced.

With fewer residents visiting the centers two months after the Aug. 31 disaster declaration, two centers, in Essex and Passaic counties, remain open. Their business hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays.
Residents should register before visiting a center. The registration deadline is Nov. 30. Find a DRC by ZIP code online at:  DRC Locator.

Applicants are reminded to keep their FEMA information updated, but not to register more than once. Duplicate registrations will delay processing an application.  A video explaining the online registration process is available at www.fema.gov/medialibrary/media_records/6246.

Registrants who still have questions may go to: www.disasterassistance.gov, m.fema.gov or call FEMA toll-free at 800-621-3362 (FEMA). Those with access or functional needs, who use a TTY, may call 800-462-7585 or use 711 or Video Relay Service to call 800-621-3362.
