    Pennsylvania will close three disaster recovery centers at the end of the week

    With hurricane assistance winding down in some counties, Pennsylvania’s Emergency Management Agency has decided to close three of its disaster recovery centers.

    Friday will be the last day for centers in Philadelphia, Susquehanna and Sullivan counties, when the doors to those facilities will close for good. Until then, regular hours from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. are still in place.

    Residents of those counties have until the end of Friday to get information and loan applications for storm and flood damage relief.

    Fifteen other disaster recovery centers remain open, including a second one in Philadelphia. The Center City facility will close Friday, but the center in Olney will continue operating. Find your nearest facility here.

    The deadline to apply for relief for Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee is Nov. 14.
