ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Time is running out for Spring storm victims to register for help.

Close to four million dollars in disaster assistance has already been approved for more than 1,760 people in 23 south Georgia counties. Additional money may be approved, but you have to apply to receive it. There's only a week left, and just today Dougherty County EMA Director Jim Vaught got two calls from residents with damage who still haven't filled out the paperwork.

"June 22nd will be the cut off for the individual assistance, but you can on the phone right now, you can dial 1-800-TRY-FEMA or you can go to FEMA's website at www.FEMA.gov to fill out the necessary paperwork to get in the system," said Jim Vaught, Dougherty County EMA Deputy Director.

Representatives say if you received a loan application from the Small Business Administration, you should complete it and return it even if you don't want a loan, because you may qualify for additional assistance. FEMA representatives were in Dougherty County this afternoon to meet with the county about reimbursable expenses from the storm.
