JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Missouri Bootheel residents facing the clean-up of debris in the aftermath of the recent ice storm are urged to proceed with caution. Trees may have broken limbs lodged in the branches, which could fall at any time. Help for the elderly, or persons in need, is available. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers tips on clearing debris. Here are some things to remember during the recovery process:
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- A rumor that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is hiring contractors to remove ice storm debris from private citizen or business property in Missouri is false, federal and state officials said today. Neither FEMA nor the state will reimburse private citizens for expenses incurred in removing debris from private property.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Joint teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), and the Small Business Administration (SBA) will go to select Missouri counties, collecting data on the extent of damage to homes and businesses affected by the January ice storm.
