Baxter Springs Won't Receive FEMA Aid


BAXTER SPRINGS, Kan. (AP) _ No FEMA aid for southeast Kansas. Officials say Baxter Springs and the southeast Kansas residents affected by a recent tornado won't get financial assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Jonathan York is the response and recovery branch director for the Kansas Division of Emergency Management. He said over the weekend that preliminary reports show the April 27th twister that hit Baxter Springs didn't have a magnitude strong enough to meet public assistance or individual assistance from FEMA. Governor Sam Brownback has requested a Small Business Administration disaster declaration for Cherokee County and adjacent counties, which would make low-interest, long-term loans available.
