FEMA: Assistance can be accessed by phone, Internet

The good news is, anyone in Port Arthur who needs assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency can get it.

The bad news is, they will need a computer or a phone and Internet access.

Port Arthur is still a city where over a thousand homes are still without power and where countless more do not have Internet access, nevertheless it is not yet clear when the city could get its own FEMA field office.

Leo Skinner, a media relations specialist with FEMA, said the Federal Emergency Management Agency has field offices in Houston, and he expects more offices to open—but he can’t say when.
