(WISH) — Federal and Indiana authorities on Wednesday said they’ll open centers in Johnson and Morgan counties for Hoosiers recovering from tornadoes and storms that hit March 31 and April 1.

The Martinsville facility is at the Morgan County Fairgrounds, 1749 Hospital Drive.

The Whiteland facility is the Clark-Pleasant Schools bus garage at 999 N. Front St.

Center hours are from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. weekdays, and from 7 a.m.2 p.m. Saturdays.

Recovery specialists from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the state and the U.S. Small Business Administration will be at the centers to help people apply for federal assistance and find referrals to resources.

Additional recovery centers will be opening in other impacted areas. People and businesses in Allen, Benton, Clinton, Grant, Howard, Johnson, Lake, Monroe, Morgan, Owen, Sullivan, and White counties can visit any open center for help. To find a nearby center, go online.

To apply for FEMA assistance without visiting a center, call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362, go to, or use the FEMA app. If you use a relay service such as video relay service, a captioned telephone service or other services, give FEMA your number for that service.

The deadline to apply for federal assistance is June 14.
