State Offering Assistance for June Derecho Storm

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) – State assistance is coming to Wayne and Holmes Counties for that derecho wind storm back in June that left residents in the dark for as long as a week.

The governor says the State Disaster Relief Program can provide funding where FEMA help ends, for local government and certain non-profits for debris removal, emergency protection and other activities.

17 counties were impacted by that storm.
