RALEIGH, N.C. – State and federal recovery officials announced the Rockingham County disaster recovery center opened to support survivors of the April 15 tornado will end operations at 7 p.m. Friday, May 25. Survivors may still register for disaster assistance online or via phone.
Also, the Greensboro recovery center will be closed for the Memorial Day Holiday weekend, May 26 – 28, and reopen May 29.
Both centers opened May 17 to provide in-person assistance for tornado survivors. The Rockingham County disaster recovery center, located at 1716 Freeway Drive, will close Friday evening. The Greensboro recovery center, located within the Guilford County Dept. of Public Health at
1203 Maple St., will reopen Tuesday, May 29.
Once a recovery center closes, survivors who have registered with FEMA can still get answers to their questions and update their information by accessing their account online at DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling the helpline at 800-621-3362. Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service may also call 800-621-3362. Persons who are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech disability and use a TTY may call 800-462-7585. The toll-free numbers are open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Multilingual operators are available.
Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.
