FEMA to open Disaster Recovery Centers in Jefferson and Hardin Counties | Environment
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Commonwealth of Kentucky and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have opened Disaster Recovery Centers in Jefferson and Hardin Counties on Friday May 27 at 1 p.m to help people affected by the recent storms, tornadoes and flooding.
Representatives from the U.S. Small Business Association will be available to explain assistance programs and help survivors apply for disaster aid.
In Jefferson County, applicants should visit the FEMA Center at 410 S. Fifth Street. Parking will be at the 4th Street Live! Parking Garage, located at 401 S. 5th Street. The entrance to the garage is on 5th Street between Muhammad Ali and E Liberty Street. Applicants visiting the DRC will be issued a voucher upon producing their parking ticket to the FEMA DRC representative.
Between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. applicants will be required to inform the attendant that they are applying for assistance with FEMA’s DRC because parking is normally pre-paid during this time period.
This information will also be posted on the EMA/MetroSafe website and sent out via PageGate to our media outlets and other public safety/service page groups.
In Hardin County, applicants should visit the FEMA center at 1450 Rineyville Road.
The centers will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. No Sunday hours.
Before visiting the centers, storm victims are encouraged to register with FEMA online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling 800-621-FEMA (3362). People with speech or hearing impairments can call (TTY) 800-462-7585.
