FEMA closing its doors for July

Lawton_FEMA has closed the doors to its flooding disaster center in Lawton but, not for long.  The agency wants you to know you can still apply for flooding disaster assistance.  This is for folks in Comanche County who need help with damage from recent flooding.

FEMA officials say, so far, they have helped over 130 families in Comanche County but know there are more out there. "We know there are still more people in Comanche County who have had damage but may think they don't have enough damage to qualify," said Rita Egan of FEMA "I would really encourage everyone who was affected by the flooding in June to call, don't disqualify yourself."

The center, located at 4135 West Gore will reopen next Tuesday, August 7th.  It will remain open until Sunday, August 12th.  In the meantime, you can still apply for federal flooding disaster aid.

Just go to FEMA's web-site at fema.gov.

Or you can call 1-800-621-FEMA.
