CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- An important reminder for tornado victims, Saturday is the last day the FEMA center in East Peoria will be open.

This is where tornado victims can have a face-to-face conversation with a FEMA representative and fill out forms to apply for federal aid. 

Those who need help can stop by the Festival of Lights building from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Though the office is closing, tornado victims have until February third to apply for federal assistance.

You can do that by phone at 1-800-621-FEMA or visit disasterassistance.gov.
