FEMA has done it again. It turned down the second request made by Gov. Jim Doyle.
From a local station:
FEMA Denies Aid to Tornado Victims...Again
Victims of the August tornadoes that struck Dane, Richland and Vernon counties hit yet another road block.
FEMA has denied another appeal by the Governor for federal disaster assistance.
The first request for aid was submitted on Aug. 25, it was denied.
On Oct. 18, a second request was made citing unmet financial needs in both the public and private sector.
The governor says FEMA is "turning their back on the people of Wisconsin who were affected by the devastating tornadoes of Aug. 18."
