CHARLESTON — Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today reminded those affected by the recent storms and floods to register with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in order to receive possible disaster recovery assistance.
“Many of the victims have been busy picking up the pieces, and simply trying to return to life as normal, that they may still need to register with FEMA for assistance,” Gov. Tomblin said. “I want to make sure our families, homeowners and business owners receive the help that they are qualified for and that starts with making sure they apply for assistance with FEMA.”
For residents in Lincoln, Marion and Wayne counties the deadline to apply for FEMA assistance is May 15. For those in Logan county, the deadline is May 21. Applicants may be homeowners, renters and businesses located in these counties who were affected by late February and March storms and floods. A disaster recovery center remains open at the following location:
