FEMA Approves More Texas Counties for Disaster Relief
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved an additional 31 Texas counties to be added to the president’s major disaster declaration for individual assistance. The approval included individual assistance in 77 counties and for public assistance (emergency protective measures only) in all 254 counties.
Counties included in this approval are Anderson, Austin, Bosque, Bowie, Burnet, Cherokee, Colorado, Erath, Fannin, Freestone, Gonzales, Grayson, Gregg, Harrison, Hill, Houston, Hunt, Jackson, Jim Wells, Jones, Limestone, Lubbock, Medina, Milam, Navarro, Rusk, Taylor, Tom Green, Val Verde, Washington and Wood.
Additional counties will be requested as the state continues to receive information reported from individuals who have suffered damage from the winter storm. Texans are urged to fill out the Texas Division of Emergency Management’s Texas Individual Assistance Reporting Tool to help the state identify and gain an understanding of damages that occurred during the recent freeze.
