Hopkins County Could Benefit from FEMA Declaration Made Monday

Hopkins County could benefit from a declaration made by The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Monday, February 25, 2019. FEMA announced that federal disaster assistance has been made available to the state of Texas to supplement state and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by severe storms and flooding on September 10 to November 2, 2018. Hopkins County is one of 33 counties included in the disaster assistance. The assistance will be on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures. The cost-sharing will be for emergency work and repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the storms and flooding.

Hopkins County Judge Robert Newsom said Tuesday morning, “Hopkins County has the opportunity once again to benefit from this disaster declaration through the FEMA proclamation.  In behalf of our citizens who live on county roads, we hope to apply for approximately $500,000 in damages which resulted from the October flooding event.
In addition, this Declaration opens the door for potential mitigation projects on our roads and other emergency needs.  We are thankful that the State Of Texas has been approved for relief.  We will begin the process in March and hope to be working on the affected areas of our County before summer.”
