PEARL, Miss. (AP) — The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency says more counties have been approved for federal disaster assistance following damage by April storms.
MEMA announced Saturday that individuals in six more counties have been approved for assistance.
They include Clarke, Grenada, Jasper, Lawrence, Panola and Walthall counties.
Governments have been approved for additional assistance in Jones, Covington and Jefferson Davis counties.
That means they can get aid to remove debris and repair roads, bridges, water treatment plants, utilities and parks.
FEMA initially approved individual and more limited government assistance in Jones, Covington and Jefferson Davis counties.
The state seeks FEMA assistance to governments in 25 more counties.
