Disaster Declaration Expands to Scotland County

Rhe Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended federal disaster assistance to Scotland County for eligible local government and nonprofit agencies that were affected by severe storms and flooding from May 29 to June 10.

On July 18, FEMA granted a request by Gov. Nixon for a major disaster declaration for Missouri for severe storms, straight-line winds, tornadoes and prolonged flooding that affected large portions of the state from May 29 to June 10. That action allows local governments and nonprofit agencies to seek assistance for response and recovery expenses associated with the severe weather and flooding.
