    Two Disaster Recovery Centers opened in Sonoma County following the deadly wildfires that burned through the region in October will close permanently on Thursday, county officials said.

    The centers at the Hanna Boys Center at 17000 Arnold Drive in Sonoma and the Press Democrat building at 427 Mendocino Ave. in Santa Rosa are open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday and again on Thursday, according to the county.

    The centers, jointly run by the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, have offered assistance and resources to survivors of the fires that started Oct. 8.

    Residents had a deadline earlier this month to apply for FEMA grants to cover home repairs and other disaster-related needs, while the deadline to return applications for help from the U.S. Small Business Administration for businesses that suffered losses as a result of the wildfires is July 12, 2018.

    Those affected by the October wildfires can get assistance by visiting or, calling (800) 621-3362 or (800) 462-7585 or using FEMA's smartphone app.
