20 September 2011


Just a quick note today. Again I can't wait to see if West Vincent will tell it's residents so I've decided to publish this announcement right away. Hopefully, West Vincent will post the same thing on its web site so my non-subscribers will find out about this. Please share this information with anyone that you know may need it.

A Disaster Recovery Center will open in Chester County tomorrow (September 20) to assist victims of Hurricane Irene. The Center will open at 1pm and remain open until 7pm. Beginning Wednesday the Center will operate from 10am to 7pm, seven days a week. The Center will operate at the Chester County Government Services Center, 601 Westtown Road, West Chester, PA. Residents and businesses impacted by Irene are encouraged to visit the center to find out about available Disaster Assistance.

In addition I was able to find this:

HARRISBURG -- The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Pennsylvania
Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) will open a Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) in

Administration will be available to answer questions about low interest rate loans.

Disaster officials recommend that you register before visiting a DRC so if you have
any questions about the application process they can be answered face to face. You
may visit any DRC regardless of where you live or work.
