Saturday, five months after Hurricane Katrina, the FEMA Disaster Recovery Center in Meridian is closed.
The local FEMA office opened in October after much anticipation and speculation. FEMA Officials say this closing will not affect the help available to local citizens. Fifteen FEMA offices are still open in Mississippi.
Disaster victims are encouraged to seek assistance by visiting www.fema.gov or calling 1-800-621-FEMA.
