Flood Disaster Recovery Center Closing In Pierre
September 21, 2011, 6:18 AM
PIERRE, SD -
A flood disaster recovery center that has been operating in South Dakota's capital city for more than a month is closing on Friday.
The center at the Pierre Mall is staffed by both state and federal officials who help flood victims apply for assistance. The Federal Emergency Management Agency says the number of people using the center has dropped off in recent weeks.
About 600 residents in Hughes and Stanley counties have been approved for aid because of Missouri River flooding this summer, and more than $1.7 million has been distributed. Flood victims have until Oct. 24 to apply.
