Americus-  In the last week, nearly 900 people have applied for assistance with FEMA at the Disaster Recovery Center in Sumter County.

Eight hundred and eighty-five Sumter County applicants have filed paperwork with FEMA. So far, FEMA has disbursed $127,000 in aid. Those residents who have completed their FEMA paperwork are now applying for loans.

"It's starting to taper a little bit, but we expect that. We're starting to see more people come in that have gotten their paperwork from FEMA to apply for loans from the SBA and starting to get things in line, said Gary Wiley, GEMA State Recovery Center manager.

FEMA and GEMA inspectors have visited and inspected storm damage at 258 homes.
