FEMA Opens 2 More Recovery Centers in Vermont

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is opening two more disaster recovery centers in Vermont -- one in Killington and one in Dover.

The offices, which can help flooding victims learn about and apply for federal aid to offset their losses, opened Thursday. The Killington location is at 2046 Route 4 in Killington. The Dover office is at 20 Taft Brook Road in Dover.

They're open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week.

Since Tropical Storm Irene hit Vermont on Aug. 28, FEMA has opened disaster recovery centers in Barre, Waterbury and Brattleboro. Spokeswoman Deanna Frazier says FEMA has already approved $6.75 million in individual assistance to people whose property was damaged in the flooding.

She says FEMA staffers at the centers can help people apply for benefits.
