President Approves Missouri Disaster Declaration

FEMA will aid in recovery

President Trump announced on Tuesday at a state of disaster exists in the State of Missouri due to major storms, tornados, and flooding that began at the end of April. Federal funding is available to the affected counties to be used for temporary housing, home repairs, and low-cost loans to build back up following the storms. Twenty counties were affected by the severe weather.

Acting Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Pete Gaynor appointed Seamus Leary as the Federal Coordinating Officer to oversee the recovery efforts in the state. Mr. Leary will work with local governments and organizations to assure that the recovery efforts go smoothly and that those who are in need of assistance are able to get the help they need. Further funding will be considered based on the pace and resource needs of the affected areas.
