Arkansas Severe Storms, Tornadoes, and Flooding (DR-4000)
RECOVERY ASSISTANCE FLOWS QUICKLY TO ARKANSANS AFTER JULY 8 DECLARATION
The spring storms and tornadoes that tore across Arkansas, plus the extensive flooding that caused so much further destruction, brought some 300 FEMA specialists to Arkansas in response to the May 2 presidential disaster declaration. Those specialists were still working in the state, many of them helping survivors apply for assistance, find temporary housing and begin home repairs, when tornadoes cut across Franklin, Johnson and Crawford counties in late May, leaving more devastation in their wake.
