All FEMA-State Disaster Recovery Centers in Connecticut will be closed Thanksgiving Day, but help will still be available to Connecticut disaster survivors.
Survivors of Hurricane Sandy in Connecticut will still be able to access FEMA's website and telephone registration line to register for assistance.
They can also check on the progress of a file or to answer documentation questions FEMA may have had during the application process.
While a Disaster Recovery Center may be closed for all or part of the Thanksgiving weekend, FEMA housing inspectors will keep appointments and may be calling survivors to set appointments for inspections.
FEMA Community Relations specialists will be in damaged areas Friday and Saturday providing information about disaster assistance.
People with storm losses should register with FEMA online at www.Disaster Assistance.gov, with a smartphone or device at m.fema.gov. Applicants can also register by phone by calling FEMA at 800-621-3362. The TTY number is 800-462-7585. Multilingual operators are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except for Thanksgiving Day, when hours are 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET.
