COLUMBIA — Missouri will receive emergency aid from the federal government after enduring a severe winter storm.
President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency in Missouri on Thursday, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency began to provide assistance.
Bob Josephson, external affairs officer for FEMA Region VII, said it is still working with the state government to do preliminary damage assessments and determine what the need will be.
Federal Coordinating Officer Elizabeth Turner will head recovery operations in the affected area.
The last time Missouri received federal emergency aid for a winter storm was Jan. 30 2009.
