HUNDRED, W.Va. (WDTV) -- FEMA announced Monday that the Wetzel County Disaster Recovery Center will be closing.

The center, located at the Hundred High School library, will close at 6 p.m. Friday.

FEMA opened up three Disaster Recovery Centers as a result of July 28 and 29 storms that led to Harrison, Marion, Marshall and Wetzel Counties being under a federal disaster declaration.

Earlier this month, FEMA shut down two of the centers due to a diminished need for them, but kept the Hundred location open to answer questions and assist those affected by flooding, mudslides and landslides in applying for assistance.

The deadline to apply for assistance is October 17. If you are unable to go to the center, you can call the FEMA helpline toll free at 800-621-3362 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. to register with FEMA or receive information about your application.
