Friday, May 28, 2010 6:40 pm
NASHVILLE - A Mobile Disaster Recovery Center will open in Cannon County Tuesday, June 1, to provide assistance to people affected by the severe storms and flooding that occurred between April 30 and May 18, 2010.
The mobile center will be located at the Community Center and Headstart Building, 630 Lehman St., Woodbury, TN 37190.
The hours of operation will be from noon to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 1, and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 2, and Thursday, June 3.
Mobile Disaster Recovery Centers allow the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to travel to counties that have been designated as disaster areas to answer questions about applications and to review information FEMA needs to process applications. Recovery specialists can supply contacts for other programs.
Disaster officials suggest that, before visiting the centers, people register online anytime at www.DisasterAssistance.gov, or call 800-621-FEMA (3362) or (TTY) 800-462-7585 for those with speech and hearing disabilities. Lines are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Help in all languages is available.
U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) representatives will be at the Disaster Recovery Centers to answer any questions about the SBA low-interest disaster loan program for homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes and certain private nonprofit organizations. These loans are to repair or replace real estate and/or personal property damaged by the storms and flooding.
