Oklahoma's governor has asked the U.S. Small Business Administration to declare a disaster in Bryan and Pittsburg counties as residents try to recover from tornadoes, storms, wind and flooding on April 30.

The request from Gov. Kevin Stitt would make SBA low-interest loans available for homeowners, renters and business owners to address damage that wasn't covered by insurance.

The governor's office said 76 uninsured properties with major damage were identified in Bryan and Pittsburg counties.

If approved, the loan program would also be available in the following contiguous counties: Atoka, Choctaw, Coal, Haskell, Hughes, Johnston, Latimer, Marshall, McIntosh, and Pushmataha.

Stitt toured the damage in Bryan County on May 6.
