Call center opening for SW Ark. storm aid

Posted: Updated:

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The state is to open a call center for people affected by severe storms that struck Hempstead and Ouachita counties in early April.

Homeowners and renters whose primary residences were destroyed or made uninhabitable are eligible for state assistance if the losses were uninsured. The Department of Emergency Management said Friday that businesses and secondary homes are not eligible for aid.

The call center will be staffed Monday through May 16, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The contact number is 888-683-ADEM (2336), though residents can also apply online around the clock at www.adem.arkansas.gov .

Assistance is available for home repairs, replacement of personal property, cleaning, automobile repair or replacement, along with other categories.
