Applying for government hurricane assistance just got harder for some South Texas residents. The Refugio branch of FEMA has closed at the fairgrounds.
Officials announced the branch would be closing last Wednesday. Residents can still apply for FEMA assistance online. So far, $694,173,681 have been approved to cover damages.
For assistance from FEMA, visit DisasterAssistance.gov or call 800-621-3362, 800-462-7585.
