32 counties declared disaster areas

The governor has declared 32 counties in the state disaster areas due to heavy rains and flooding.  The declaration will authorize $200,000 in assistance from the Governor's Disaster Fund for flood victims in Clark, Dallas, Jefferson, Garland, Lonoke, Miller, Monroe, Phillips, Poinsett, and Saline Counties.  The list of counties considered to be disaster areas is expected to grow as reports come in from other counties around the state.  The Arkansas Department of Emergency Management will ask FEMA officials for assistance in determining whether or not Arkansas qualifies for a federal disaster declaration. 

Don't know about any of you guys but my folks lost 15 trees about one week ago.  They were also out of power for about 24 hours.  It's a mess.
