CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – Representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are in Clarksburg, prepared to meet with Harrison County residents who suffered damage during the August 2023 storm event.

Bridgeport Director of Emergency Management Tim Curry said FEMA representatives will be here for the next several weeks and no appointments are needed.

“From 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., it will be open Monday through Saturday for the next 30 to 40 days, and it will be at the Harrison County Courthouse,” Curry said.

Parking around the courthouse is a mix of public and private parking lots, so residents should make sure they are parking in an approved area.

“All the parking meters during the week will have two-hour metered parking available, and there is two-hour free parking available at Jackson Square, but on the weekends all of the meters are free,” Curry said.

In Bridgeport, about 130 homes were damaged during the storm, and the communities of Anmore and Lost Creek were also hit hard.

The state is next expected to seek a federal disaster declaration for public assistance.
