Craighead County Judge Ed Hill signs Disaster Proclamation


Jonesboro, AR, June 9, 2014.  After meeting this morning with Craighead County Mayors and utility providers in a post-disaster assessment hosted by the Office of Emergency Management, Judge Ed Hill has submitted paperwork to declare a disaster in Craighead County related to the June 5th Wind Storm event.   The request is being made for public assistance and individual assistance .  Public assistance allows cities and public utilities the ability to recover some of the costs associated with clean-up from the storm.  Individual assistance, if approved, will aid homeowners with the repair of their private property. 


After meeting with stakeholder’s this morning, Judge Hill indicated that the damage assessments indicated the need to request the additional assistance.  A copy of the filed declaration is attached.Craighead County June 5th Wind Storm Disaster Proclamation (2) Craighead County June 5th Wind Storm Disaster Proclamation (2)_Page_2 Craighead County June 5th Wind Storm Disaster Proclamation (2)_Page_3 Craighead County June 5th Wind Storm Disaster Proclamation (2)_Page_4 Craighead County June 5th Wind Storm Disaster Proclamation (2)_Page_1
