President Barack Obama has issued a major

Chase, Chautauqua, Coffey, Cowley, Dickinson, Elk, Grant,

Greenwood, Harvey, Lyon, Marion, Sumner and Woodson.

Help is also available for snow removal and other emergency

costs incurred in 19 counties. They are: Barber, Barton, Clark,

Comanche, Edwards, Grant, Haskell, Kearny, Kingman, Kiowa,

McPherson, Meade, Pratt, Reno, Rice, Seward, Stafford, Stanton and

Federal money is also available statewide on a cost-sharing

basis for hazard mitigation measures.
