MEMA Steps In After FEMA Denies Tornado Aid

DURANT, MS (Ben Caxton) — On Wednesday the Federal Emergency Management Agency approved funds to help government and non-profit storm victims in a number of Mississippi Counties. But they denied assistance to private individuals and businesses in the most heavily damaged area in the April 30 tornado outbreak, Holmes, and Montgomery counties. Governor Phil Bryant is working with the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency to try and provide state grant money instead. Many homes in the area were severely damaged, and many had no insurance. Volunteers have stepped in to help. But additional assistance is needed in the form of loans or grants to get people in the affected areas back into their homes.
