MEMA working to get federal flood relief for 14 Mississippi counties



The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency has requested a joint preliminary assessment for public assistance from FEMA.

This request includes 14 counties and is worth up to $50 million. Those counties include:

  • Attala
  • Carroll
  • Claiborne
  • Clay
  • Copiah
  • Grenada
  • Hinds
  • Holmes
  • Issaquena
  • Leflore
  • Sharkey
  • Simpson
  • Warren
  • Yazoo

MEMA is also working to see if individual assistance will be possible.
