FEMA sets up at Lowe's in Summersville to help residents avoid future disasters

Posted: Updated:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is planning ways to help residents avoid future damage from windstorms, floods and other natural disasters by building safer and building stronger structures.

FEMA specialists will be on hand at the Lowe's in Summersville, Nicholas County, beginning Oct. 3 to explain better building techniques that can reduce loss to homes, businesses and property from future disasters.

In addition to that instruction, FEMA Individual Assistance representatives will be on hand to answer questions about FEMA registration 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.

West Virginia has set up four FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers to assist people with personal claims from the June 29, 2012 storms.
