The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has opened Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) across Louisiana, New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey in an effort to help residents affected by Hurricane Ida.

A Disaster Recovery Center opened yesterday in Hudson County to help residents in New Jersey affected by the remnants of the storm.

Hudson County, which borders New York City and includes Hoboken, Union City, and outskirts of Newark, experienced some damage due to the effects of Hurricane Ida. The DRC serves residents of Hudson and surrounding counties.

Representatives from FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration are available at the centers to explain disaster assistance programs, answer questions about written correspondence and provide literature about repairs and rebuilding to make homes more disaster resistant.
