severity and magnitude to warrant a major disaster declaration under the

find necessary for Federal disaster assistance and administrative expenses.

You are authorized to provide Public Assistance in the designated areas and

under the Stafford Act you may deem appropriate.  Consistent with the 
requirement that Federal assistance be supplemental, any Federal funds provided 
under the Stafford Act for Public Assistance and Hazard Mitigation will be 
limited to 75 percent of the total eligible costs.  

Further, you are authorized to make changes to this declaration to the extent 
allowable under the Stafford Act.

  Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the authority vested in the Director 
  of the Federal Emergency Management Agency under Executive Order 12148, I 
  hereby appoint James Roche  of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to act
