The FEMA center set up at the volunteer fire department in Dothan has announced Saturday will be their last day here.

After evaluating the amount of people needing assistance in the Wiregrass, they have decided to move on to their next location, helping those along Alabama’s western counties.

Operators say only about 60 people per day have come to the center for help, perhaps because most victims already received aid within the first couple of weeks following the storm.

The center's manager, Bob Frettoloso says, "Hopefully that's what it is and not that people just aren't getting through the registration. We're getting a lot of people through here. People need to register first and then let them make the decision."

Anyone who still needs assistance after Saturday can register online at www.FEMA.gov
