A Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) will open Monday, Oct. 2 through Sunday,  Oct. 8, in Jacksonville to help Florida storm survivors. The DRC will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week until further notice.

They offer in-person support to individuals and small business owners. Recovery specialists from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and the state are available to provide assistance to anyone with filling out applications or updating their status. Voluntary organizations are available and offer a variety of services to help survivors recover.

Hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
THIS LOCATION IS CLOSING SUNDAY, OCT. 8 AT 8 P.M.
