EAST PEORIA, Ill. -- Tornado survivors looking to register with FEMA will no longer have a one-stop-shop.

FEMA's disaster recovery center in East Peoria shut its doors Saturday.

But survivors still have until February 3rd to register with the agency for help.

They must register by phone or online.

More than fifteen hundred people have already registered.

One FEMA representative says there are about a hundred who have not.

"There are three types of assistance available for survivors. That is rental assistance, two months for renters two months for homeowners, also grant money to help you repair or rebuild as well as grant money for person property," said FEMA representative Deanna Frazier.

People needing help can call the FEMA line at 1-800-621-3362 or log onto www.disasterassistance.gov.
