The extension means survivors now have until May 31, to submit their application to FEMA or the Small Business Administration. The initial registration period would have ended on April 1.center_img Governor Dunleavy: “The spring thaw may uncover earthquake damage to southcentral homes that had previously gone undetected, or will be exacerbated by thawing ground. The extension gives property owners time to look for new or hidden damage, apply for federal disaster assistance, make the necessary repairs and get their lives back in order. I also want to thank FEMA officials for understanding Alaska’s arctic conditions and for approving my request within a matter of days.” Anyone impacted by the earthquake may register at 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or online at www.disasterassistance.orglast_img
