ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) - According to Monroe County Road Manager Sonny Clay, the county is awaiting a disaster declaration from President Donald Trump.
This comes after storms ripped through the county in April, including a tornado in Hamilton.
Clay has assisted in putting together a plan which includes a 90-day contract for contractors to get the debris picked up in the county.
The plan has been for it to be approved in May and to begin in early June.
"Within the next ten days, our board of supervisors will have to make a decision on if we want to wait on that deceleration or whether we pull the plug,” he said. “We are 99.9 percent sure we are going to get a declaration.”
