DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

If you haven't already, FEMA representatives said now is the time to head to disaster recovery centers for help.

Following the January storms, FEMA set up seven centers throughout South Georgia. 

So far, FEMA has given out more than 3.1 million dollars in individual assistance. 

On Friday the center at the Albany Mall will close. 

The only open center will be at 1721 East Oglethorpe Drive in Albany. 

That's where the most victims have been going to for help. 

"We've tried to provide as much assistance as possible to individuals. We are going to be working long term with the local community on projects to help local governments," said FEMA representative John Mills.

FEMA representatives said they will help the local governments by reimbursing at least 75 percent of disaster related costs. 

Although many of the disaster recovery centers are closed, FEMA representatives are still available on the phone for as long as folks need them.
