Only two weeks remain for homeowners, renters, and business owners who suffered damages from Hurricane Ike and live in one of the 34 counties designated for federal and state assistance to register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
State and federal officials are urging anyone who still needs to register to do so before the registration deadline of Nov. 12.
“The deadline is only two weeks away and we don’t want anyone with disaster damages to miss this opportunity for assistance,” said State Coordinating Officer Joan Haun. “Register, get into the FEMA system and let’s find out what you are eligible for.”
There are two ways to register: log on to www.fema.gov or call FEMA’s toll free number, 1-800-621-3362, or TTY 1-800-462-7585 for the hearing impaired. Both numbers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until further notice. Residents should register only once; duplicate registrations may cause delays in the delivery of assistance.
