HATTERAS ISLAND, N.C. (WAVY) – The Disaster Survivor Assistance Team (DSAT) returned to Hatteras Island Saturday and will remain there through Wednesday, November 23.

Officials say that the DSAT members will be canvassing neighborhoods sharing information on FEMA’S Individual Assistance Program and answer disaster survivor questions and concerns.

Team members will also be located at the Dare County Satellite Campus in Frisco beginning November 21 to November 23 working with the Dare County Staff.

Dare County Emergency Management has requested that a mobile Disaster Recovery Center return to Hatteras Island when it is available to give residents additional time to meet one on one with FEMA representatives regarding requests for disaster assistance.
