SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (AP) — A disaster recovery center has been set up in Omaha to help Nebraskans affected by the historic flooding of the Missouri River.

It is scheduled to operate from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday at the Omaha Civic Center in downtown.

It will be operated by the state, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Individual disaster aid is available to people who live in Boyd, Burt, Cass, Dakota, Dixon, Douglas, Knox, Sarpy and Washington counties.

Officials say people with flood-related losses should register with FEMA even if they have applied for assistance with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, filed a claim with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, received assistance from local voluntary agencies or called the NEMA flood hotline to report damage.
