FEMA Extends Flood Aid Deadline In Hickman County

According to Gov. Phil Bredesen, Tennessee requested and received a 30 day extension on the deadline to file for aid through the FEMA programs. Instead of July 6 as the deadline, individuals will now have until August 5 to apply for assistance. Forty-six counties were eligible for disaster relief from FEMA.

Hickman County is slowly recovering from the Great Flood of 2010 although there is plenty of work left to do. The baseball and football park for junior pro in Centerville and probably Lyles still needs lots of repairs and some roads are still barely passable. Several churches are still waiting on being repaired. But sooner or later, everything will get back to normal.

For more information about the filing deadline you can read the article from The Tennessean here
