Rep. Tom Dermody (R-LaPorte) today encouraged residents in Pulaski County to visit a Disaster Recovery Center if they were affected by the recent and ongoing flooding.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Small Business Administration and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security set up these centers in response to the severe storms and flooding that have hit the area.
"Although flood waters damaged a number of homes and businesses in our communities, assistance is now available and I urge those affected by this continuing disaster to apply for aid," said Rep. Dermody. "I thank all of the volunteers and government agencies that are working so hard to provide help to those in need. Without their commitment, restoring our neighborhoods would simply not be possible."
Victims of the storm may apply for assistance immediately by calling, 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). The toll-free number will be in operation from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (local time) every day. Those with speech or hearing impairment may call TTY 1-800-462-7585. Registration can also be done online anytime at http://www.fema.gov/. Two mobile centers also are available.
