FEMA has approved the state of Alabama's request for federal disaster aid related to damage from Hurricane Zeta.
This comes about six weeks after the storm hit central Alabama on Oct. 29.
The public assistance is approved for 19 counties, including Dallas, and individual assistance for seven counties including Dallas.
Gov. Kay Ivey said in a press release Thursday evening that she talked to the president this afternoon and got the OK.
“On my call with President Trump earlier today, he assured me that we could consider our request for federal aid following Hurricane Zeta done, and he quickly delivered. Within hours of our call, FEMA approved our request for public and individual assistance. This will go a long way in providing the people impacted by Zeta the help they need.”
