LOVELAND, Colo. -- Larimer county residents were invited to a meeting for evacuees Friday night where they heard about the current situation of their county following days of flooding.

Federal, state, county and local officials from several agencies were at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland to update them on what was being done to help them recover, as well as what steps were being taken to repair all of the damage in the county.

The biggest piece of advice for victims officials have is to make sure and visit one of the  disaster assistance centers that are open. Representatives are there from many agencies who can help.

Anyone seeking aid, or wondering if they are eligible, should contact FEMA in one of the following ways:

  • Apply online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov.
  • Apply via smartphone at m.fema.gov.
  • Call the registration phone number at 1-800-621-3362; those who have a speech disability or hearing loss and use TTY, should call 1-800-462-7585 directly; for those who use 711 or Video Relay Service, call 1-800-621-3362
