FEMA's Disaster Recovery Center in Scott County will be open for an extra week to help people whose homes were damaged by the derecho in August. 

After opening in Bettendorf last month, the drive-through operation moved to Davenport. It's now located in the parking lot next to the Annie Wittenmyer Family Aquatic Center at 2828 Eastern Avenue.

FEMA Spokesman John Mills says recently, more people have been visiting the disaster recovery center, mainly to ask for information.

So far, 68 homeowners and renters in Scott County have qualified for more than $200,000 in grants. 

In 12 counties in Iowa so far, Mills says FEMA has granted more than $8.4 million to about 2,200 homeowners and renters, the majority in Linn County (1,700 households and $6 million).
