New FEMA Disaster Assistance Office opens in Lexington this week

FEMA is getting ready to open another Disaster Assistance Office in central Kentucky, because of last month's severe storms and flooding.

The new office will be opening in Lexington.

FEMA will open the office Wednesday morning at 9 at Centenary United Methodist Church on Tates Creek Road.

The office will be open one week, until Wednesday, June 30. It will operate from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day, except Sunday, when it will be closed.

Specialists from FEMA will be on hand to help storm and flood victims with claims related issues.

U.S. Small Business Administration representatives will also be on hand to answer questions about their low-interest disaster loan program.

July 12 is the deadline for registering for disaster assistance and for applying for SBA disaster loans.

FEMA says flood victims who haven't registered for assistance should call 1-800-621-FEMA, or click the link to FEMA's Disaster Assistance website, which is attached to this story.

FEMA will close several Disaster Assistance Offices in Kentucky this week.

Offices in Winchester, Mount Vernon, and Somerset will close at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

An office in Lancaster will close at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
