There is still time for Westchester homeowners, renters and business owners impacted by Hurricane Sandy to receive information and file claims with FEMA.
On Saturday, FEMA is holding a Westchester Disaster Recovery Workshop, Saturday, February 16. From 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., foks can stop by the free event at Mount Pleasant Town Court. (The court is located at 1 Town Hall Plaza, Valhalla.)
"These workshops give survivors a chance to get their disaster assistance and recovery questions answered one-on-one, face-to-face," FEMA Public Information Officer Nate Custer said.
Tomorrow, reps from FEMA’s Individual Assistance, Community Relations, Mitigation and the National Flood Insurance Program, along with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will be at the workshop to assist folks.
The new deadline to register a claim with FEMA is February 27, 2013. Applicants can also register by calling: 800-621-3362 (TTY 800-462-7585) or online at www.disasterassistance.gov or via smartphone or tablet at m.fema.gov.
As of February 13, 5,657 Westchester County residents/businesses have filed claims with FEMA, according to Custer.
