ORANGE - The Federal Emergency Management Agency has set up two walk-in centers in southwestern Connecticut to help residents and businesses who sustained property damage from Irene.

Residents can visit the Orange or Greenwich locations for assistance with filing paperwork for FEMA aid.

Marjorie Cole, of Milford, says she lost everything to floodwaters caused by Irene and hopes to begin getting her life back with the help of FEMA. She says she also hopes to get her house raised so that when another flood hits, she doesn't lose everything.
