WINNIE, Texas — The clock is ticking if you're looking to register with FEMA or the S.B.A for assistance after Tropical Storm Imelda. 

Tuesday, December 3rd is the deadline to apply for assistance and seven locations around Southeast Texas are still open to help folks. 

Donald Hollister came to one of the FEMA disaster recovery centers around to try to get a little help.

"Harvey and Imelda hit us both," said Hollister, 

He said he'll be making major repairs because of the damage the storm brought. 

"We are going to replace the whole roof and we are also going to have to replace all of the floor," said Hollister. 

FEMA and S.B.A are offering financial assistance to repair homes, replace furniture and buy personal items.

The Small Business Administration has received 3,401 applications, and has approved $56 million in aid to be given to victims as of Wednesday.
