Those impacted by April 27 and 28 severe storms, tornadoes, straightline winds and associated flooding are urged to register for assistance before visiting a DRC by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). The
TTY number is 1-800-462-7585 for those with speech or hearing disabilities. Both numbers operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. After registering, those who have questions can visit a center to meet
face-to-face with recovery specialists.
Applicants may also register online anytime by going to www.disasterassistance.govor on their mobile devices by going to m.fema.gov.
