A Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 2, and Monday, June 4, in Lake Station, to assist Indiana flood survivors.

The DRC will be located at Polk Elementary School, 2460 Vermillion St. in Lake Station. It will not be open Sunday, June 3, and will close permanently at 7 p.m. Monday, June 4.

Disaster Recovery Centers offer in-person support to individuals and business owners. Recovery specialists from FEMA, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and the State of Indiana will be available to provide assistance to anyone filling out their applications or updating their status. Voluntary organizations are available and offer a variety of services to help survivors recover.

You may have other needs while visiting a DRC:

* If you have a disability and require a reasonable accommodation, please see a DRC manager when you arrive.

* Language translations are offered through Telephonic Interpretation Services in 200 languages.

If you have already registered, it is not necessary to visit a DRC. You may still want to go speak with a Recovery Specialist to update your status, submit documentation, or find help from the other organizations.
