CARROLLTON, MO—FEMA’s assistance experts will be  in Carrollton today through August 27th to offer home-improvement tips on rebuilding better and stronger after this year’s severe flooding in Missouri.

FEMA’s team will also share proven methods to prevent or reduce damage from disaster in the future. Most of the information and free publications are aimed at those willing to take on do-it-yourself projects and general contractors. FEMA’s John Mill’s Tells KMZU how many people have been assisted in Carroll County.

FEMA says just over 1,000 people in 26 Missouri counties have been given assistance.

Representatives are at Wood Shed Lumber and Hardware Supply from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, tomorrow, Saturday and Monday. The team will be on hand from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 27. Applications for assistance will be accepted until September the 9 but FEMA encourages people to still contact them whenever they feel they need assistance.

Mill’s wants people to stay in contact with FEMA even after the filing deadline.
