Federal Aid Approved for Winter Storm (May 13, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma is getting more federal aid to recover costs incurred in a severe winter storm in February.

Gov. Mary Fallin said Friday approval of a major disaster declaration means public assistance is available from the government to pay for damage to roads and bridges as well as snow removal and response costs for the snow storm that occurred Jan. 31 through Feb. 5.

Counties covered by the declaration are Craig, Creek, Jefferson, Logan, Mayes, Nowata, Okmulgee, Osage, Ottawa, Pawnee, Pottawatomie, Rogers, Stephens, Tulsa, Wagoner and Washington. Initial surveys estimate state and local costs for the storm in the counties exceed $8.7 million.

Fallin declared a state of emergency on Jan. 31. She later requested and received a federal emergency declaration that authorized such resources as bottled water and blankets.
