FEMA Officials Urge Arkansans To Register For Aid
The Federal Emergency Management Agency is urging Arkansans affected by severe storms earlier this week to register with the agency because they may qualify for disaster assistance.
FEMA officials said Wednesday that residents and business owners in Faulkner County who had property damage from the storms should file an application with the agency for aid. The assistance should cover temporary housing and medical expenses.
On Tuesday, President Barack Obama approved a major disaster declaration for the county that allows residents to apply for aid.
Affected residents can register online at www.disasterassistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621-3362 or 1-800-462-7585. The toll-free numbers will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day until further notice.
