COLUMBUS – FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers will open Monday, May 13 in Auglaize and Logan counties to help residents kickstart their recovery after the March 14 tornadoes.

The Logan County center will be open at the following location, days and hours:  

Galilee Lutheran Church   

301 Lincoln Blvd.

Russells Point, OH 43348

Additional recovery centers will be opening in other impacted counties soon. To find the center nearest you, visit FEMA.gov/DRC. Survivors may visit any center for assistance.

Assistance in languages other than English, including American sign language, and translated materials are available at these centers. Disaster Recovery Center locations are chosen for their accessibility, with the goal of reaching as many people as possible. Accessible parking spaces are available at all centers. 

Survivors don’t need to visit a Disaster Recovery Center to apply for FEMA assistance. To apply without visiting a center, go online to DisasterAssistance.gov, download the FEMA mobile app or call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362. If you use a relay service such as video relay service, captioned telephone service or others, give FEMA your number for that service when you apply.
