BROOKLYN - A new FEMA disaster recovery center has opened in Sheepshead Bay for the victims of Superstorm Sandy.

The Brooklyn neighborhood was among the hardest hit areas, and many residents are still trying to recover more than two months after the storm.

Sandy victims have until Jan. 28 to register with FEMA for assistance from the federal government. They can get help with rent, home repairs and personal property losses not covered by insurance.

The center is located at the Sheepshead Bay Yacht Club at 3706 Emmons Ave. The Small Business Admministration (SBA) is also located at the new site, which will be open until the deadline from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily.
