Wisconsin residents affected by the late summer storms and flooding have two weeks left to register for federal disaster assistance. The deadline is Monday, Dec. 17.

Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) remain open in Dane and Vernon counties from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. They are located at:

Representatives from FEMA, the U.S. Small Business Administration, Wisconsin Emergency Management and other State of Wisconsin agencies are available to explain disaster assistance programs, answer questions about written correspondence and provide literature about repairs and rebuilding to make homes more flood resistant.
