County is made eligible for federal disaster aid

February 06, 1996

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has declared Carroll County a federal disaster area, meaning homeowners and businesses will be eligible for low-interest loans and grants.

"This disaster assistance will help Carroll County recover, rehabilitate and dry out from January's devastating flood," said Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, a Maryland Democrat.

County emergency managements officials said residents of Detour and Union Bridge sustained the most severe flood damage.

People who need assistance can call the FEMA hot line at (800) 462-9029.

The hearing-impaired should call TDD (800) 462-7585.
