A FEMA official talks with Arkansas storm victims on Saturday.

A FEMA official makes a house call Saturday in one of the state's flood-hit neighborhoods.

Federal Emergency Management Agency officials are going door to door in the state's eight counties hardest hit by tornadoes and flooding that began April 23.

Each official will carry a photo ID and a shirt noting the agency's logo.

The teams hope to educate people about assistance programs and answer any questions storm victims may have.

FEMA urges homeowners, renters and business owners in the eight disaster-designated counties to register for assistance as soon as possible. Registration can be done online at, via smartphone at, or by phone at 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or (TTY) 1-800-462-7585. The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time seven days a week until further notice.
