MEMPHIS, Tenn. — If you’re trying to get in touch with the Office of Emergency Management in the aftermath of the storm, it just got a bit easier.

The office added a new number to handle the increased influx of calls.

That new number is 324-8799. You can still reach OEM at 636-2525, but calling the new number may be faster.

Another resource if you need help is dialing 211, the Library Information Center, which connects people with community resources.
