This afternoon, representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Disaster Assistance, will talk to FOX10News about federal disaster loan programs that are now available to flood victims in Baldwin County,

A FEMA office has opened at the Fairhope Civic Center to help families recover from the historic flooding affecting thousands of families along the Gulf Coast.  We’ve also been told that another FEMA office will be under operation at the Elberta Town Hall in south Baldwin County.

Friday, the Baldwin County EMA opened an emergency shelter at the Robertsdale Coliseum for anyone who needed shelter during recovery from the recent rainfall and floods and the expected heavy rainfall this weekend.

EMA told Fox10News, one person stayed overnight at the shelter.  There are no plans to close the shelter at this time.  Baldwin EMA officials say the plan is for the Robertsdale shelter to remain open until Tuesday of next week.  If you need a ride, BRATS is providing free transportation to the Robertsdale facility.  You can call 251 972 6817 for assistance.

Baldwin EMA officials told Fox10News this morning, no major problems appeared to have occurred after Friday night and Saturday morning’s rainfall.  Many Baldwin residents, however, are still dealing with flood waters, cleanup and washed out road issues after the historic rain event.
