FEMA opens Disaster Recovery Center in Hazelwood to help flood victims

HAZELWOOD, Mo. — FEMA will open an emergency recovery center in Hazelwood this week to provide personal assistance to flood victims.

FEMA and US Small Business Administration salvage specialists will meet with victims for five days this week at the Hazelwood Civic Center at 8969 Dunn Road.

The Disaster Recovery Center is open Monday from 2pm to 7pm and Tuesday through Friday from 8am to 7pm. The site aims to help victims of historic flash floods in the St. Louis area in late July.

Specialists provide information about available services, explain assistance programs, and help survivors complete or check the status of their government assistance applications. FEMA may be able to provide individual assistance for expenses related to rent assistance, damage to personal property, housing reimbursement, basic home repairs, and other serious needs.

As of Sunday, FEMA has awarded $1.2 million in individual relief grants to renters and homeowners in the St. Louis area to help them recover from flooding.

People affected by flooding in St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County can visit the recovery center. Before visiting the center, people are asked to apply for help from FEMA online at DisasterAssistance.gov or call 800-621-FEMA (3362).

After Friday, August 19, FEMA plans to relocate a disaster recovery center. For the latest Disaster Recovery updates, click here.
