Oklahoma given more than $10 million in storm aid

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Federal Emergency Management Agency
officials say state and federal assistance for individuals and
communities affected by tornadoes and other severe weather in May
has topped $10 million.

FEMA said Monday more than $9.3 million of the aid has gone for
grants and low-interest loans to homeowners, renters and business
in counties included under a May 24 disaster declaration. Those
counties are Carter, Cleveland, Creek, Garvin, McIntosh, Okfuskee,
Oklahoma, Pottawatomie and Seminole.

Officials say $1.1 million has been obligated under FEMA's
Public Assistance (PA) Grant Program to help the state and its
agencies, local and tribal governments and certain nonprofit
organizations recover their eligible disaster-related costs.

Under the PA program, FEMA pays 75 percent of eligible costs,
and the state and the applicants split the final 25 percent.
