Ice storm disaster aid approved for 10 Oklahoma counties
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The federal government has approved Gov. Mary Fallin’s request for disaster assistance to help residents of several northwestern Oklahoma counties recover from last month’s ice storm.
Fallin said Friday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency had approved disaster aid for the 10 Oklahoma counties most impacted by the Jan. 13-16 ice storm. The counties are Beaver, Beckham, Dewey, Ellis, Harper, Major, Roger Mills, Texas, Woods and Woodward.
The storm caused widespread power outages in northwest Oklahoma. At least four deaths and 65 injuries were attributed to the winter weather. Damage assessments indicate the storm resulted in more than $22 million in infrastructure damage, debris and response costs.
Federal aid will help municipalities, counties, rural electric cooperatives and the state with infrastructure repairs and costs associated with responding to the storm.
