BRIDGEPORT - The Small Business Administration (SBA) opened up a disaster-assistance office in Bridgeport today to help residents affected by the tornado in June.

Residents whose homes were damaged by the tornado and high winds say they went to the office in the Bridgeport Library for help in applying for low-interest SBA loans to help pay for repairs.

One resident says she's hoping she'll get a loan because she hasn't been able to get help anywhere else.

The SBA had an office in Stratford last week to help residents there.
