Over the past few weeks, Oklahomans around the state faced record rainfall and severe weather, leading to widespread destruction and flooding. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who lost their lives in this tragedy and all families affected by the devastating flood, tornadoes and other severe weather.
The State of Oklahoma received a major federal disaster declaration for 17 counties in the state: Canadian, Creek, Delaware, Kay, Logan, Mayes, Muskogee, Okmulgee, Osage, Ottawa, Payne, Pottawatomie, Rogers, Tulsa, Sequoyah, Wagoner and Washington. As conditions develop, more counties may be included. This declaration means that families can receive individual assistance, communities can receive grants to assist in rebuilding efforts, and agriculture producers can access USDA assistance.
