Disaster Recovery Center Opens in Georgia’s Cobb County

September 25, 2009

A disaster recovery center operated by the state of Georgia and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) opened today in Cobb County for those affected earlier this week by severe storms and flooding.

The center is located at The Threadmill, 5000 Austell/Powder Springs Road, Suite 151 in Austell, and is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week until further notice.

People who suffered losses can get person-to-person assistance at the centers.

Disaster officials ask that before visiting the centers, people first apply for assistance by registering online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling 800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY 800-462-7585. The toll-free numbers are staffed seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Also, U.S. Small Business Administration representatives will be at the center to answer questions about the SBA’s disaster loan program for homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes and private non-profit organizations. These loans are to repair or replace real estate and/or personal property damaged by the storms and flooding.
