President Barack Obama has issued a major

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.
