OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is asking for federal disaster assistance for parts of the state affected by the tornadoes and storm-related damage last month.

Fallin’s office announced Friday that the governor is seeking approval from the U.S. Small Business Administration for low-interest disaster loans in Tulsa and Rogers counties and surrounding areas for help in recovering from the March 30 storms.

Homeowners and business owners whose storm-damaged property is not covered by insurance or other programs would be eligible for the loans, if approved by the SBA.

Fallin’s office says 34 homes or businesses in Tulsa County were destroyed or had major damage as a result of the storms and that about 200 homes in Rogers County were damaged.
