[ARCHIVED] FEMA Opens Disaster Recovery Center in Midland County

August 9, 2017 - The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will open a Disaster Recovery Center today, Wednesday, August 9, at noon to assist June 2017 flood victims with the registration process for federal disaster assistance.

Representatives from FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will be at the center to answer questions about disaster assistance as well as provide information on low-interest disaster loans for homeowners, renters, and businesses. 


The Disaster Recovery Center is located at Carpenter Street School, 1407 W. Carpenter Street in Midland. Parking is located at the rear of the building and is accessible from Hines Street.  The center’s operating hours after today will be 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday until further notice.
