FROM STAFF REPORTS
About 3,800 residents hit by a series of floods, storms and tornadoes in Central Texas have collected more than $12.3 million in housing grants and other assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency since May 29.
Three-quarters of total individual assistance disbursements so far — nearly $9.5 million — has gone to residents of Hays, Caldwell, Guadalupe and Blanco counties, the four counties affected most directly by deadly and destructive flooding along the Blanco River during Memorial Day weekend. Residents in Hays County alone have received more than $7.6 million.
Here is a county-by-county look at FEMA individual assistance as of Sunday, Aug. 9, according to figures released Monday by FEMA spokesperson Robin Smith:
The deadline to register for individual aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency is Aug. 27. People can register online, by phone or in person at a disaster recovery center.
