Monroe County Disaster Recovery Center open through Friday

A Disaster Recovery Center will be open from Wednesday, Nov. 7, to Friday, Nov. 9, in Monroe County to help renters, homeowners and businesses in Wisconsin affected by the severe storms and flooding of Aug. 17 through Sept. 14.

The center will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 545 Front St. in Cashton WI, 54619.

At the Disaster Recovery Center, representatives from FEMA, U.S. Small Business Administration, Wisconsin Emergency Management and state agencies will be available to explain disaster assistance programs, answer questions about written correspondence and provide literature about repairs and rebuilding to make homes more flood resistant.

Before visiting a recovery center, flood victims should register for federal assistance in one of the following ways:

DisasterAssistance.gov

Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service may also call (800) 621-3362. People who use a TTY may call (800) 462-7585. The toll-free numbers are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. Multilingual operators are available.

Anyone requiring a reasonable accommodation (ASL interpreting, braille, large print, etc.) may call 800-621-3362 to request assistance in advance or ask the recovery staff at the center for assistance.
