Americus-  Thursday FEMA will close one of it's disaster recovery centers in south Georgia but many affected by the storms will still have another three weeks to apply for federal assistance and now FEMA's going door to door.

The State and federal Disaster recovery center at the Mitchell County Emergency Service facility on Highway 37 East in Camilla closes its doors Thursday at 6:30 p.m. The centers in Baker and Sumter Counties will remain open until further notice. FEMA and GEMA has also launched door to door campaigns in Baker, Crawford, McDuffie, Mitchell, Sumter and Taylor Counties to ensure everyone has access to FEMA resources.

"They go door to door throughout the entire affected area to make sure everyone does have the information and if they have friends, relatives, or neighbors that might live outside of the impacted area that may have still had damage, then they'll have more information and additional flyers," said Rita Egan, FEMA.

Disaster Unemployment Assistance for individual who may have lost their jobs as a result of the March first storm will be accepted through April 7th.
