     Time is running out for residents in East Haven to seek assistance from Tropical Storm Irene at the Disaster Loan Outreach Center.

    The center on Cosey Beach Avenue is closing this today, Oct. 27, at the close of business. The center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    Gov. Dannel Malloy recently reminded Connecticut residents and businesses suffering damage or losses during Tropical Storm Irene that they have until Thursday, Nov. 3 to register with FEMA to begin the disaster assistance process.

    Registering with FEMA begins the process of evaluating which assistance (FEMA, SBA or other programs) Connecticut residents can qualify for.

    “Residents and businesses should allow FEMA to evaluate their damages and eligibility for assistance, even if they carry insurance,” Malloy said in a news release.  “Individuals and businesses may qualify for low-interest loans and other beneficial disaster recovery programs.”

    You can register with FEMA online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov anytime or by calling 800-621-FEMA (3362).

    You still have to register, even if you have already provided damage information to your town, FEMA, state officials or 2-1-1.
