Disaster Recovery Centers Open in Taney and Stone Counties

The federal government is opening two temporary offices this week to assist individuals and businesses that suffered damages from severe storms and floods in late September. KSMU’s Alvin Chen reports.

These Disaster Recovery Centers are designed to provide information and direction. One Disaster Recovery Center opened in Taney County on Monday, and another one will open in Stone County later this week.

The first center is located in the Rockaway Beach Community Center in Taney County. It will remain open through Dec. 3rd. Chris Berndt is the director of the Taney County Office of Emergency Management.

Another Disaster Recovery Center will open later this week in Reeds Spring High School in Stone County. That office will be open from Dec. 4th through Dec. 6th.

Tom Martin, the Emergency Management Director for Stone County, says eligible residents can apply for the financial assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or “FEMA”.

Before visiting either of these federal disaster recovery centers, people need to register by calling FEMA’s toll free number: 1-800-621-FEMA. Also, you can register for federal assistance online at www.fema.gov.
