The Federal Emergency Management Agency says it has approved more than $411 million in housing and other aid for Superstorm Sandy victims in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey.

FEMA has already opened 44 disaster recovery centers in the three states. Of those, 21 are in New York, 16 are in New Jersey and seven are in Connecticut. More centers are on the way.

FEMA says that as of Saturday afternoon, more than 356,000 people have registered for assistance.

To find a disaster recovery center, check out the locator at www.fema.gov/disaster-recovery-centers or by mobile phone at m.fema.gov. You may also text DRC and a zip code to 43362 (4FEMA).
