Hawaii County announced today that the Disaster Recovery Center in Pahoa assisting survivors of the Kilauea eruption will close permanently on Friday.

The center, which first opened in mid-June at Keaau High School, and is now held at the Pahoa Neighborhood Facility, 15-3022 Kauhale St., will maintain its hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. this week until the closing date.

It is staffed with representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and U.S. Small Business Administration, as well as other agencies.

Survivors are encouraged to stay in touch with FEMA through the application process. Applicants should notify FEMA of changes to their information such as a mailing address, phone numbers and email address. Applicants may also upload insurance settlement information or other documents online.
