Disaster Recovery Center Opens in Hazelwood to Assist Flood Survivors

ST. LOUIS – A FEMA disaster recovery center will open – for five days only – on Monday, August 15, in Hazelwood (St. Louis County) to provide one-on-one assistance to people directly affected by the July 25—28 flooding and severe storms.

The recovery center will then relocate. A new announcement will be made soon.

Recovery specialists from FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration will provide information on available services, explain assistance programs and help survivors complete or check the status of their applications.

The disaster recovery center location is:

Hazelwood Civic Center

8969 Dunn Road

Hazelwood, MO 63042

Open Five Days Only: Monday, August 15, 2 p.m.–7 p.m.

Then: Tuesday—Friday, 8 a.m.–7 p.m.

People directly affected by flooding in St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County may visit the recovery center. Before visiting the center, apply with FEMA online at DisasterAssistance.gov or call 800-621-FEMA (3362).

For needs directly related to the July 25—28 flooding, FEMA may be able to provide Individual Assistance grant money that does not have to be repaid for:

  • Rental Assistance if you need to relocate because of flood damage
  • Personal Property that was damaged or destroyed by flooding
  • Lodging Reimbursement if you had to stay in a hotel temporarily
  • Basic Home Repairs for homeowners whose primary residence was damaged by flooding
  • Other Serious Needs caused by recent flooding

In addition to the assistance listed, please note the following:

  • Only one application per household
  • FEMA does not pay for lost or spoiled food

By law, FEMA is not allowed to duplicate insurance payments or assistance provided by other sources.

Other St. Louis-area disaster recovery centers are expected to be announced soon.
