Federal disaster officials are advising West Virginia residents who were affected by flooding last month and have applied for assistance to stay in touch with the agency.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency says applicants who change an address or phone number should update the information with FEMA, even if the change is only temporary. Delays could result if information is missing or incorrect.

FEMA said in a news release it's a good idea to provide a secondary contact number when registering with the agency.

To update information, applicants can visit the FEMA website to upload documents or call the toll-free FEMA Helpline at (800) 621-3362 from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
