FEMA update

Officials with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced Friday a mobile disaster relief center will be set up in Salem next week.

The mobile disaster relief center for residents with questions regarding assistance following the disaster declaration made for Washington County in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene will remain open for three days.

FEMA public information officer Peter Lembessis said the mobile center will be set up Sept. 28-30 in the First Presbyterian Church in Salem.

Representatives at the site will answer questions relating to federal and state assistance to survivors from Irene. Depending on need, the center might be opened again, Lembessis said.
