Disaster survivors who are repairing their homes after Hurricane Fiona can visit Walmart in Carolina, Manatí and Mayagüez, Home Depot in Bayamón and Ponce and National Lumber hardware stores in Cabo Rojo, Juana Díaz and San Lorenzo to talk with mitigation specialists from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) about their damage and discuss how to make homes stronger and safer during the rebuilding process, officials said last week.

They will also provide information on topics such as selecting contractors, understanding flood insurance coverage and emergency preparedness. No appointment is needed.
