FEMA still helping even with disaster recovery centers closing
Placeholder Image
As the Elgin recovery center did several weeks ago, a disaster recovery center in Richland County as the county’s main library on Assembly Street in Columbia will close Wednesday at 6 p.m. However, even with disaster recovery centers closing, many services are also available by calling the U.S. Federal Emergency Mangement Agency (FEMA) helpline. Survivors of the Oct. 1-23 storms and flooding in South Carolina can get help by calling 800-621-3362 or TTY 800-462-7585; those who use 711/VRS can call 800-621-3362. Lines are open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week until further notice.
