Mobile disaster recovery centers coming to South Dakota

PIERRE, S.D. South Dakota state leaders and the Federal Emergency Management Agency are sending mobile Disaster Recovery Centers to five counties across the state to offer in-person support to individuals and businesses that suffered losses from the severe winter storms and flooding from this spring. This follows openings of fixed-site Disaster Recovery Centers in Minnehaha and Yankton counties, Pine Ridge Reservation, and the Rosebud Reservation.

The first of these mobile centers will open Wednesday, June 26, in the City of Martin in Bennett County. Representatives from the state, FEMA, U.S. Small Business Administration, and other organizations will staff the mobile centers to explain available assistance programs and help connect survivors with resources that best match their recovery needs.

All Disaster Recovery Centers are open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time.
