Mobile Disaster Recovery Centers to Visit Sharp and Stone Counties

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) - They're known as MDRCs to the professionals, but to us, they're Mobile Disaster Recovery Centers and they're coming to Sharp and Stone counties to help victims of recent severe storms, tornadoes and flooding.

The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management (ADEM) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) made the announcement that the MDRCs will be open April 15-18 (Tuesday-Friday) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the following locations:

Stone County

Disaster victims should register for assistance before visiting an MDRC by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or go to FEMA.gov

Representatives from ADEM, FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will be at the MDRCs to answer questions and provide recovery information.  Representatives also can:

  • Check the status of your application
  • Provide information about state agencies and voluntary organizations
  • Discuss the SBA's low-interest loans for homeowners, renters and businesses
