    There are 33 Disaster Recovery Centers now open in New Jersey to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.

    On Saturday, Governor Chris Christie announced the opening of two new locations in Ocean County:

    Harvey Cedars Bible Conference Center
    12 Cedars Ave.
    Harvey Cedars, NJ 08008

    Little Egg Harbor Senior Center                  
    641 Radio Road                                               
    Little Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08087        

    Disaster Recovery Centers give residents an opportunity to register for assistance and to get answers to any questions they may have. While it's not necessary to visit a center to receive assistance, some people find it helpful to speak one-on-one to recovery representatives.
