ETOWAH COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) -- As disaster recovery centers shut down across the state, help is still available through multiple organizations.

Dozens of homes were flattened, about 150 were damaged. That's in Etowah County alone.

Other area counties mirror those damages, and as disaster recovery centers shut down across the state, like the one for Dekalb and Etowah Counties, some organizations are still offering help.

"Basically we provide low interest rate loans, disaster loans, for those whose insurance is fallen short," Small Business Administration representative Beverlyn McDonald says.

Beverlyn McDonald works for the Small Business Administration.

The organization is helping storm victims get back on their feet.

"We will give a 2.1 interest rate loan to help you rebuild your home as well as your personal property and contents," McDonald says.

Renters, non-profit businesses, and for-profit businesses are some of the entities that the SBA can help.

The Small Business Administration is there for storm victims until July first.
