Disaster recovery centers continue to open for those seeking help after the storm.

  • Disaster relief center at Jean Rhein Central Branch Library 
  • Library to open its doors at 9 a.m.
  • Library will not help with snap card for food program

The disaster relief center at the Jean Rhein Central Branch Library, on 215 North Oxford Rd. in Casselberry, will open its doors at 9 a.m., Tuesday and will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day, but Sundays.

This is for people who have experienced some sort of loss after Hurricane Irma. Individuals or small business owners can come and speak with recovery specialists from FEMA and also the U.S. Small Business Administration.

There will also be representatives from the state who will be able to help those filling out new applications or updating previous applications. One of the things the Casselberry disaster relief center will not be handling is the D-SNAP card for the Food for Florida program.

Meanwhile, Friday is FEMA's deadline to report uninsured or underinsured damage to homes and other possessions such as a car.

FEMA says there are more than 1,400 inspectors in the field and they have already completed 825,000 inspections.
