BROOKPORT — Illinois tornado survivors have until 6 p.m. Saturday to visit the FEMA Disaster Recovery Center at the Brookport Library on U.S. 45.

After that date, survivors of the Nov. 17 Illinois tornadoes can still get help by calling the FEMA helpline at 800-621-3362. Survivors who use TTY can call 800-462-7585. The toll-free telephone numbers operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., daily.

Survivors can also call the helpline to register with FEMA before the Jan. 27 registration deadline.

Other ways to register include online at: disasterassistance.gov or with a Smartphone or tablet by downloading the FEMA app or going to m.FEMA.gov.

Survivors must register before the deadline to be eligible for possible grants and Small Business Administration low-interest disaster loans for temporary rental assistance, home repair and rebuilding, replacement of lost personal items, and other disaster-related expenses. Assistance will continue after Jan. 27, but applicants must register by that date to be considered.
