Little Rock, Arkansas — In a news release, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced that will allocate financial aid to victims of the Springdale area tornado.
According to Hutchinson, $100,000 in individual assistance will be available to homeowners affected by the storm.
In order to estimate the dollar amount of damage, leaders of local and state emergency agencies have joined investigators from FEMA to inspect homes and structures.
The Small Business Administration will also give low-interest loans to businesses that were impacted.
In a statement, the Gov. said, “While management of the response to a natural disaster is one of the most difficult tasks that falls to a governor, it’s also one of the most rewarding because I witness the best in people that emerges in the worst of times.”
Many homes throughout Washington County have been destroyed by the tornado that stayed on the ground for only eight minutes.
