WEST, Texas - - An assistance center in a Central Texas community still recovering nearly a month after a deadly fertilizer plant explosion will resume regular hours.

Officials in West say the recovery center making government help available returns to its regular schedule Monday. The location was closed Sunday on Mother's Day.

The April 17 explosion in West, about 70 miles south of Fort Worth, claimed 14 lives and left about 200 people hurt. Dozens of structures were damaged or destroyed.

State officials and experts with the Federal Emergency Management Agency are available daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. CDT until further notice. People needing assistance may also register online.
