13 More Alabama Counties Get FEMA Aid
Thirteen more Alabama counties are qualifying for federal assistance due to the storms, tornadoes and flooding that hit the state in late April and early May.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency says state and local government programs and some nonprofit organizations may apply for disaster assistance in Blount, Butler, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, DeKalb, Etowah, Franklin, Geneva, Lamar, Perry, Pickens and Tuscaloosa counties. Five other counties — Baldwin, Jefferson, Lee, Limestone and Mobile — were approved for the aid earlier.
FEMA says the aid can include debris removal, emergency protective measures, and work on roads, bridges and public buildings.
