FEMA to open disaster office for St. Helena
St. Helena residents affected by Hurricane Isaac soon will be able to apply for disaster assistance at a recovery center in Greensburg.
Jessica Strickland, Office of Emergency Preparedness director, says the Federal Emergency Management Agency will set up a disaster recovery center at Charlie Overton Park within the next few days.
Until then, Strickland says residents may apply for FEMA assistance by calling 800 621-FEMA or visiting the agency online at http://www.disasterassistance.gov.
Strickland tells The Advocate FEMA estimates 40 to 50 St. Helena homes sustained damage that would qualify for disaster assistance.
