LOWNDES COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Agents from FEMA have decided to extend their stay in Lowndes County.

In hopes of assisting all those affected by flood damage, Lowndes County's Disaster Recovery Center is going to remain open at least through next Wednesday. The center, on East Hill Avenue, is also open to storm victims from surrounding counties.

At least fifty homeowners who received flood damage in Lowndes are yet to file for assistance with FEMA.  County workers are encouraging them to do take advantage of the help.

"Our big message right now is, 'don't give up,'" says Lowndes County's Public Information Officer Paige Dukes.  "You're going to get some information after you apply online of after you apply through the phone. If you have a question about that, if for some reason you were denied and you don't think that sounds quite right, or you're just not sure how the process works, please come down to the center while FEMA is here in town."

The Lowndes County Center will be open Saturday, but closed Sunday.
