JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — If you live in one of 27 flood-hit Missouri counties, you might see someone knocking on your door to help you register for disaster assistance.
Federal Emergency Management Agency representatives are scheduled to start Monday in Carter, Franklin, Jefferson, Howell, Newton, Ripley and Taney counties.
They’ll be carrying FEMA photo identification badges and could ask for personal information to speed up the process.

• Phone number where you can be reached.

Bollinger, Butler, Douglas, Dunklin, Gasconade, Jasper, Madison, Maries, McDonald, Oregon, Osage, Ozark, Pemiscot, Phelps, Pulaski, Reynolds, Shannon, St. Louis, Stone and Texas counties will see representatives at a later date.
Home inspectors will be out and about soon, contacting homeowners and renters to meet to verify flood damage from April 28 to May 11. They will also have photo identifiation.
If you apply for a disaster loan with the U.S. Small Business Administration, a loss verifier will inspect the damage.
