US Senator Jack Reed said the Federal Emergency Management Agency is opening three disaster recovery centers in Rhode Island to help people affected by Hurricane Sandy. He said on Thursday that the centers will be staffed by disaster relief officials, including representatives of FEMA.

On Wednesday, FEMA approved Rhode Island’s request for individual assistance in those two counties. (AP)
