BELMAR - FEMA says that as communities rebuild after Hurricane Sandy, they might maintain a presence in the state for the next two years to deal with the demand for help.

The storm recovery center in Belmar continues to assist Sandy victims 100 days after the storm.

So far, $353 million has gone to individual New Jersey households.

The deadline to apply for FEMA assistance is March 1. That's after the deadline was already extended by one month, so anyone who still needs aid should apply for it as soon as possible.
