BETHEL, N.Y. -- Sullivan County residents who sustained damage to their home because of Superstorm Sandy have a new location to get information on federal relief from FEMA.

Representatives will be at the Cornelius Duggan School in Bethel until Friday.

“If people have damage to their primary dwellings from Hurricane Sandy, then they need to come in and talk to us about either applying or if they’ve already applied, then they can come in and talk to us about any issues they might have with their application," said FEMA Disaster Recovery Center Manager Sandy Ramsey.

Bethel Town Supervisor Daniel Sturm says between 40 and 50 homes in his town alone had extensive damage. The town also experienced lengthy power outages due to the storm. The opening of the center is aimed to help people start the recovery process.

“I would encourage anybody that has a lot of damage or any potential damage to come here or apply online, "said Sturm.

The Small Business Administration will also be on hand this week to specifically assist people with damage to their businesses.
