Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. - Local recovery centers are closing, but help is still available for those effected by Superstorm Sandy. Officials say that The Disaster Recovery Center in Crisfield will close its doors on Friday, January 18th, at 5:00 PM.

Those in need who still have questions can direct them to Federal Emergency Management Agency, toll-free, at 1-800-621-FEMA or TTY 1-800-462-7585. Somerset County residents can also apply for federal assistance online.

Ken Mallette, Executive Director, Maryland Emergency Management Agency, says "at this stage of the recovery process, the emphasis for assistance is to meet the long-term needs of victims."

We're told that since the center opened on December 18th, more than 1,100 people, including homeowners, renters, and business owners, have visited the center. The deadline to apply for assistance is February 12th.

There are two easy ways to begin the application process. You may call FEMA's toll-free number, 1-800-621-FEMA (3362), TTY 1-800-462-7585. Both numbers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week until further notice, and multilingual operators are also available to answer your call.

Officials say that help is just one phone call away. For more information visit Disaster Assistance's website.
