If you need financial assistance after the wildfires, you have until 8pm tonight to apply online.

The Canadian Red Cross says is ending the option to register online for the one-time $500 emergency aid from the government.

You can still call the number between 8a.m. and 8p.m. 7 days a week or by visiting the teams in person at the temporary sites.

The sites are in Halifax at the 4-pad complex on 61 Gary Martin Drive and in Shelburne at the Community Centre on 63 King Street.
