All the Middle Tennessee Disaster Recovery Centers serving survivors of the March 31 tornadoes closed last week, including the one in Waynesboro, but FEMA specialists are still available to answer questions, provide updates, and give direction to those who qualify for federal, state, and community programs and assistance.

FEMA specialists are just a phone call away. Survivors may call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362. It is important to stay in touch with FEMA if you change your address or phone number, even if only temporarily. Missing or wrong information could delay your assistance.

The deadline to apply for FEMA disaster assistance is Tuesday, June 6. Here’s how to apply:

  • Visit DisasterAssistance.gov
  • Use the FEMA mobile app
  • Call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362. If you use a relay service such as video relay service (VRS), captioned telephone service or others, give FEMA your number for that service when you apply. Helpline operators speak many languages and lines are open from 6 a.m. to midnight Central Daylight Time daily.

For the latest information on Tennessee’s recovery from the recent tornadoes, visit FEMA.gov/Disaster/4701.
