FEMA Denies Federal Ice Storm Aid For Grayson County

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX -- FEMA has denied federal aid to Grayson County for December's ice storm.

The state of Texas has 30 days to appeal the decision on behalf of a total of 12 North Texas counties.

FEMA says there was not enough impact to warrant federal help.

The county had to exceed $423,000 worth of damage to be eligible, and county emergency management director Sarah Somers says they expect damages to exceed $2 million.

Somers says they are hopeful that decision could be overturned on appeal.
