“The center will remain open indefinitely until we are sure that everyone who needs help has received it,” Astorino said.
The center was set up to provide residents with information about FEMA disaster assistance and other aid available to victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Residents who need emergency food stamps may also apply for that assistance at the recovery center, or at four branch offices of the Department of Social Services .
FEMA strongly advises people to register online before visiting the disaster center.
The County Center is located at 198 Central Ave. in White Plains, adjacent to the Bronx River Parkway.
