Federal disaster declaration pending
Tunica County has not yet received federal designation as a disaster area, according to local emergency management officials. The request was made by Gov. Haley Barbour on May 6. Tunica County was included in the request, along with Adams, Bolivar, Claiborne, Coahoma, DeSoto, Jefferson, Humphreys, Issaquena, Sharkey, Warren, Washington, Wilkinson and Yazoo counties.
Such a declaration would provide federal aid to affected local governments, individuals and businesses. Gov. Barbour is requesting: public assistance for the 14 counties; individual assistance, including the Individuals and Households Program, crisis counseling, Disaster Unemployment Assistance, USDA food coupons and distribution, USDA food commodities, disaster legal services, the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Small Business Administration disaster loans; and Hazard Mitigation Grant Program statewide.
