Arkansas Governor Says $2M Available to Some Flood Victims

November 12, 2009

Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe says $2 million will be available to 12 Arkansas counties for assistance from recent flooding and storms.

Beebe authorized the money be released from his disaster fund to provide limited assistance to flood and storm victims in those counties. Arkansans with uninsured damage to their primary residences may be available for state aid in Columbia, Franklin, Grant, Johnson, Lincoln, Logan, Lonoke, Ouachita, Pulaski, Scott, Union and White counties.

Beebe said he will request a presidential disaster declaration for flooding damage to infrastructure, but said he doesn’t believe the state will meet the federal requirements for individual assistance.
