President Obama Signs North Carolina Disaster Declaration

Posted by Admin On April - 1 - 2014

President Barack Obama declared a major disaster in the State of North Carolina and ordered federal aid to supplement state and local recovery efforts in the area affected by a severe winter storm during the period of March 6-7, 2014.

Federal funding is available to state and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the severe winter storm in the counties of Alamance, Caswell, Davidson, Davie, Granville, Guilford, Orange, Person, and Randolph.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.

W. Craig Fugate, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Department of Homeland Security, named Elizabeth Turner as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area.

FEMA said additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further damage assessments.
