The FEMA deadline for flood victims is just days away.

More than 15 million dollars has been approved so far and flood victims have until Tuesday to register.

The two FEMA disaster recovery centers in Pike County are closing for good right now.

FEMA representatives are closing up shop at the disaster recovery centers, but there was a surge of people before the doors closed.

FEMA workers helped flood victims up until the last minute at the two Disaster Recovery Centers.

David McCracken is just one who made a last minute stop at the Center in Coon Creek before it shut down for good.

“I had to get a check signed and notarized by the SBA, David McCracken said.

FEMA Officials say more than 100 people visited the two centers this week.

Although the centers are closed, FEMA registration is open a few more days. Tuesday is the deadline.

FEMA officials encourage flood victims who have not signed up to apply, no matter how small the damage.

FEMA has already approved more than 15 million dollars in assistance for the 2,500 people who have applied so far.

Those who registered can amend their application for up to 18 months.

The phone number to register is 1-800-621-FEMA.
