DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) - FEMA opened a disaster recovery center in Delphi Tuesday. It's part of an ongoing effort to help victims involved in the late February flooding.
Floodwaters devastated parts of Carroll County and other surrounding counties back in February. Dozens of homes were damaged.
Now, recovery specialists are available to help people fill out forms and update their status with FEMA.
A recovery center opened at the First Assembly of God Church, which is located on U.S. 421. The center will be open through Thursday.
Officials with FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration are offering grants and low-interest loans to help with repair costs. A disaster recovery center manager, Paul Buffington, is urging people to register, even if they have not discovered damage yet.
"If you had damage during the storms but you think, 'Jeez, I don't really want to do this because it’s too early,'" said Buffington. "If you develop mold and things like that and you haven't registered, it's important that you do get registered and be considered for any funds you may have coming to you."
The DRC hours are 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
