Feds Open 7 More Mass. Tornado Recovery Centers

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is opening seven more disaster recovery centers in the next two days in the areas of Massachusetts affected by tornadoes.

That's on top of two that opened over the weekend.

The centers are scheduled to open Monday in Agawam, Brimfield, Sturbridge and Wilbraham, and on Tuesday in Monson, Southbridge and Westfield. Recovery centers opened in Springfield and West Springfield on Saturday.

They are open from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. seven days a week.

People who lost property in the tornadoes that tore across Hampden and Worcester counties on June 1 can meet with specialists from FEMA, the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, as well as other state agencies and charities.

Those seeking assistance are encouraged to register with FEMA before going to a recovery center.
