A few short weeks ago steady, heavy rains and periods of torrential downpours devastated many areas of Tennessee. Campbell County suffered its share of damages from this deluge.

Now President Donald Trump has declared a major disaster in Tennessee. This declaration will bring federal disaster relief dollars to areas that suffered flooding, mud slides and other weather related damages. This federal funding will be made available to state and certain local governments for the repair and replacement of damaged areas. In addition some non profit organizations will also be eligible for this aid.

Campbell County, along with nearby Scott, Union, and Claiborne Counties are on the list of those eligible areas.
