April 2, 2007

CORDELE, Ga. - People affected by the March 1-2 severe storms and tornadoes only have 30 days left to apply for disaster assistance.

Georgia residents, renters and business owners in the nine counties declared for Individual Assistance who sustained damage from the March storms and tornadoes may register for disaster assistance until May 2, 2007.

The toll-free number and the FEMA Web site are two ways to begin the application process. Residents may call the registration line at (800) 621-FEMA (3362) or (800) 462-7585 for the hearing- and  speech-hearing. Multilingual operators are available through the same numbers. Residents with Internet access have the option to apply on the Web at www.fema.gov.

For those who have already registered, the above numbers also serve as the FEMA Helpline where they can update their registration and obtain other disaster-recovery information.

Federal and state officials remind those affected by the recent tornadoes that they must apply by the appropriate deadlines to receive disaster assistance.
