Patricia Brach, public information officer for FEMA, said Saturday that her agency has prepositioned emergency service teams already posted away from the coast so they can rush aid to where it is needed.
Patricia Bach, public information officer with FEMA, told KDYN News that the team was here to get a better picture of the damage and impact to the area from the tornado.Bach pointed out that the last time the team was here, the damage hendered the team from being able to see all the damage.
The information and assessment from Thursday's visit will be forwarded on to the other agencies of the Federal Goverment that will review to decide if Franklin County meets the threshold for Federal assistance.
Bach told KDYN News that in order to receive funding from FEMA, a disaster must be to the extent that it is more than can be handled at the local or state level.
