FEMA Rejects Genesee County’s Request for Disaster Relief
FEMA has said no to Genesee County's request for federal disaster relief money after flooding in May.
Here's an excerpt from the letter to Governor Rick Snyder:
"Based on our review of all the information available, it has been determined that the damage to dwellings from this event was not such severity and magnitude as to be beyond the capabilities of the state, affected local governments, and voluntary agencies. Accordingly, we have determined that supplemental federal assistance is not necessary. Therefore, I must inform you that your request for a major disaster declaration is denied."
