WASHINGTON (WTVA) - U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., says the president approved Mississippi's disaster declaration request to aid in recovery from February's bout of winter storms.
"Great news! The President has just approved a Major Disaster Declaration for the State of Mississippi after February’s damaging winter storms. This declaration unlocks federal funding to support recovery efforts, including some repairs to water infrastructure in affected areas."
Last month, Mississippi requested a disaster declaration for the winter weather that swept through the state from Feb. 11-19.
