Washington, DC -- The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) today designated four counties in eastern Wyoming eligible for federal disaster funds to help communities recover from the effects of a severe winter storm that hit the state last month. FEMA Director James Lee Witt took the action after President Clinton authorized the assistance under a major disaster declaration issued this afternoon.
