Jul 29, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Additional federal aid is being made available to Nebraska for areas affected by recent severe weather.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency said in a news release Monday that the money will supplement state and local recovery efforts for areas affected in early June by severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding. Federal aid was made available to other areas of the state earlier this month.

Federal funding is available to state and local governments, as well as certain private nonprofit organizations, for emergency work in Burt, Butler, Cass, Hamilton, Holt, Nemaha, Pawnee, Polk, Rock, Thurston, Valley, and Washington counties.
