More Communities Get DRC Locations

Disaster Recovery Centers will be available for several days in Clarke, Lowndes, Noxubee, and Smith counties, as people seek help in-person from damage related to the hurricanes.

The mobile Disaster Recovery Centers will start by visiting Macon and Raleigh.

The centers serve individuals and families affected by Hurricane Katrina. Those who have questions may visit a mobile center to meet with recovery specialists in person.

Disaster victims are urged to register for assistance before visiting one of the mobile centers by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). The TTY number is 1-800-462-7585 for those who are speech- or hearing-impaired.
