FEMA officials are on the ground in New Jersey

FEMA officials are on the ground in New Jersey but it may be a day or two before they decide where and when to open disaster recovery centers.

For now, the agency is directing those in need to the American Red Cross, which is operating shelters around the state, which sustained widespread damage from Hurricane Sandy.

The FEMA web site has a Sandy page where residents can apply for disaster relief.

Laura Kirkpatrick of the Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management said she’s received numerous calls about FEMA relief.

“They haven’t established offices in Monmouth County yet,” Kirkpatrick said Wednesday night. “But it’s only been 24 hours since we saw the extent of the damage. We have 262,804 power outages in Monmouth County. That’s out of 282,798 customers in the county.”

‘We have 262,804 power outages in Monmouth County. That’s out of 282,798 customers in the county’
The FEMA web site should be updated within the next day or two with information on local facilities, according to FEMA spokeswoman Becca Wexler.

Federal aid is available for residents in the counties of Atlantic, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean and Union. The disaster teams are assessing the damage in other areas of the state to decide whether more federal funding is warranted.

FEMA will provide assistance with temporary housing, home repairs and loans to cover uninsured property loss.

To apply for FEMA help, visit disasterassistance.gov or call             (800) 621-3362      .

After a Hurricane FEMA Guidelines
  • Continue listening to a NOAA Weather Radio or the local news for the latest updates.

  • Stay alert for extended rainfall and subsequent flooding even after the hurricane or tropical storm has ended.

If you have become separated from your family, use your family communications plan or contact FEMA or the American Red Cross.
  • FEMA has established the National Emergency Family Registry and Locator System (NEFRLS), which has been developed to help reunite families who are separated during a disaster. The NEFRLS system will enable displaced individuals the ability to enter personal information into a website database so that they can be located by others during a disaster.

  • The American Red Cross also maintains a database to help you find family. Contact the local American Red Cross chapter where you are staying for information. Do not contact the chapter in the disaster area.
  • If you evacuated, return home only when officials say it is safe.

  • If you cannot return home and have immediate housing needs. Text SHELTER + your ZIP code to 43362 (4FEMA) to find the nearest shelter in your area (example: shelter 12345).

  • For those who have longer-term housing needs, FEMA offers several types of assistance, including services and grants to help people repair their homes and find replacement housing. Apply for assistance or search for information about housing rental resources

  • Drive only if necessary and avoid flooded roads and washed  out bridges. Stay off the streets. If you must go out watch for fallen objects; downed electrical wires; and weakened walls, bridges, roads, and sidewalks.
  • Keep away from loose or dangling power lines and report them immediately to the power company.

  • Walk carefully around the outside your home and check for loose power lines, gas leaks and structural damage before entering.

  • Stay out of any building if you smell gas, floodwaters remain around the building or your home was damaged by fire and the authorities have not declared it safe.

  • Inspect your home for damage. Take pictures of damage, both of the building and its contents, for insurance purposes. If you have any doubts about safety, have your residence inspected by a qualified building inspector or structural engineer before entering.

  • Use battery-powered flashlights in the dark. Do NOT use candles. Note: The flashlight should be turned on outside before entering – the battery may produce a spark that could ignite leaking gas, if present.
  • Watch your pets closely and keep them under your direct control. Watch out for wild animals, especially poisonous snakes. Use a stick to poke through debris.
  • Avoid drinking or preparing food with tap water until you are sure it’s not contaminated.
  • Check refrigerated food for spoilage. If in doubt, throw it out.
  • Wear protective clothing and be cautious when cleaning up to avoid injury.
  • Use the telephone only for emergency calls.
  • NEVER use a generator inside homes, garages, crawlspaces, sheds, or similar areas, even when using fans or opening doors and windows for ventilation. Deadly levels of carbon monoxide can quickly build up in these areas and can linger for hours, even after the generator has shut off.
