Federal Disaster Assistance For Woodward Denied

KSCB News - April 22, 2012 5:04 pm

Governor Mary Fallin’s office says her

request for federal assistance to individuals and businesses

affected by a tornado that killed six in Woodward has been denied.

A news release on Friday said that Fallin will now ask the U.S.

Small Business Administration for a disaster declaration for

Woodward County.

The Sunday morning tornado left three girls 10 and younger and

three men dead.

Preliminary damage assessments found the storm affected 224

homes and businesses in the county. Of those, 73 were destroyed, 22

had major damage and 21 had minor damage.

An SBA disaster declaration would provide for low interest

disaster loans for renters, homeowners and business owners to

repair or replace property damaged by the severe weather if it is

not covered by insurance or other assistance programs.
