Arkansas Severe Storms, Tornadoes, And Associated Flooding (DR-1975)
HAZARD MITIGATION GRANTS HELP PROTECT ARKANSANS
The citizens of Vilonia faced the fury of nature on April 25, when a deadly tornado tore through their town. While some families found shelter from the storm in individual safe rooms or storm shelters, many others were forced into closets, bathtubs and under beds for protection from the destructive winds. Sadly, some Arkansans lost their lives in that storm and others that struck the state over the following weeks.
HOUSING AND HOPE FOR ARKANSANS
When temporary housing units rolled into Little Rock recently, they brought interim housing options and hope to many Arkansans who lost their homes during the spring severe weather and flooding. The arrival of each unit brings its future resident another step further in the recovery process.
ONE MONTH LATER — SO MUCH DONE, BUT PLENTY LEFT TO DO
Over a month after FEMA’s arrival in Arkansas following the devastating spring storms and tornadoes, state and federal agencies have rushed over $22 million in assistance to families and communities. While much assistance has come quickly, we still have so much more to do before we, and the people of Arkansas, can consider our mission complete.
