The flooding in April and May took its toll on hundreds of area homes and businesses.

Now, FEMA officials are helping to make it easier to get back to life as usual.

“We have a table set up for mitigation outreach in support with DSA, which is disaster survivor assistance,” James Aladin, a FEMA official, said. “We are here to give information for recovery efforts as far as rebuilding and repairing your home.”

The assistance is available to anyone who had damage during the flood.

FEMA teams will be onsite at area Lowe’s stores until June 20. But flood victims will have until August 6 to register for assistance.

"If you've registered in the past for a different disaster you do need to register again," Aladin said. "If you registered in the past for a different disaster and got FEMA assistance you are eligible for assistance as well."

FEMA reps tell us they've had to send some rejection notices after previous floods, sometimes for reasons as simple as incorrectly filled out paperwork. They say if you do get a rejection notice, read it carefully so you don't miss out on assistance for which you may still qualify.
