WEST, Texas (AP) - A government assistance center in a Central Texas town devastated by a deadly fertilizer plant explosion will now concentrate on providing loans.
The recovery center in West on Monday became the Small Business Administration disaster loan outreach center. The site formerly was the state and Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster recovery center.
The April 17 blast in West claimed 15 lives and left about 200 people hurt. Hundreds of homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed.
FEMA says the SBA location will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday until further notice. FEMA specialists will also remain on hand to answer disaster assistance questions.
