FEMA Information For West Tennessee

Estimates keep coming in for counties in west Tennessee after last month’s flood/tornado/straight line wind damage. Three county offices are remaining open, and the FEMA office in Dyersburg is transitioning to a new location. The Jackson Sun has the story.

To contact FEMA call 1-800-621-3362. People seeking aid must apply within 60 days of their county being declared a federal disaster area.

The following Disaster Recovery Centers remain open in West Tennessee:

Gibson County, County Fairgrounds, 1242 Manufacturer’s Row, Trenton

Haywood County, Parks and Recreation Building, 100 Boyd Ave., Brownsville

Madison County, West Forest Family Medical Clinic, 779 W. Forest Ave., Jackson

The recovery center at the Dyersburg Mall will close at 7 p.m. today, and re-open at 8 a.m. Friday as an SBA Disaster Loan Outreach Center, at 115 W. Market St.

I traveled through Gibson County on Sunday and on the north part of Milan, it looked like it had rained uprooted trees. Building and homes were damaged, some beyond repair. The story at The Sun cites damages in the millions for each area.
