Washington, D. C. -- The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced today that federal disaster aid has been made available for people in central and southwestern Indiana ravaged by last Friday's string of violent tornadoes. FEMA Director Joe M. Allbaugh said President Bush ordered the assistance under a major disaster declaration issued this afternoon immediately after receiving the agency's analysis of the state's expedited request for federal relief.
