Derecho Deadline Extended

PRINCETON —  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (WVDHSEM) announce that the deadline to register for aid following the late-June/early-July derecho is being extended to December 19, 2012.

The disaster-designated counties are: Boone, Cabell, Clay, Fayette, Greenbrier, Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Mason, McDowell, Mercer, Mingo, Monroe, Nicholas, Pocahontas, Raleigh, Roane, Tyler, Webster, and Wood.

The fastest and easiest way to register is by visiting www.disasterassistance.gov. You may also register on your smartphone at m.fema.gov. If you do not have access to the internet, you may call FEMA's toll-free hotline at 800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY 800-462-7585 for the deaf or hard of hearing. After the application deadline, FEMA's toll-free phone line will still be available to assist those who have already registered.  Applicants who have questions about disaster assistance programs or questions about the status of their previously filed applications should continue to use FEMA's toll-free number.
