FEMA Denies Indiana’s Appeal for Federal Assistance for Daviess Co.



Indiana may seek low-interest federal loans for six counties hit by tornadoes and other severe November weather now that federal officials have rejected the state's disaster aid request.

Homeland Security officials say the state may seek low-interest loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration that could provide some help to Daviess and five other counties.

112 homes were damaged in Daviess County by an EF-2 tornado with 120 mile an hour winds.

35 structures were destroyed or suffered major damage and 25 suffered minor damage.

Three businesses were destroyed and several others damaged, leaving 15 people unemployed.

In addition, The Daviess County Sheriff's Department was forced to transfer inmates to a neighboring county.
