TOWANDA, PA -- Bradford County, Pennsylvania continues its recovery from Tropical Storm Lee, and emergency management officials are trying to make that process as easy as possible.
A disaster recovery center has been set up at the Towanda Fire Department and includes numerous federal and local relief organizations waiting to help. The list includes FEMA, the Red Cross, and the Social Security Administration, which is on hand to help replace Social Security cards lost in the flood. Organizers say the center is a one-stop-shop for people looking for help.
"It's to have them come in and be able to get all of their questions answered, or at least end up with a phone number or a location where they can go to get further information," said the center's manager Gerald Kiltz.
The list of agencies on hand at the center include:
-Social Security Administration
-U.S. Small Business Administration
-Environmental Protection Agency
-Office for the Aging
The center is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
