OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt says that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved disaster assistance for 18 counties due to spring flooding.
Stitt’s office said Friday that approval makes federal funding available to cities, counties, rural electric cooperatives, and the state for infrastructure repairs and costs associated with severe storms that struck Oklahoma and many other states on April 30th and May 1st.
Counties approved for assistance are Alfalfa, Atoka, Bryan, Coal, Craig, Kay, Lincoln, Love, Major, Noble, Nowata, Okmulgee, Osage, Ottawa, Pittsburg, Pushmataha, Stephens, and Tillman.
Damage assessments indicate that the storm caused more than $7 million in damage.
Stitt said that the state is waiting for word on his request for a federal disaster declaration in 41 counties as a result of severe storms from May 7th-June 9th.
