Disaster President Declares California Federal Disaster Area

The White House has declared California a Major Disaster Area in the area affected by the Rim Fire during the period of August 17 to October 24, 2013.

RIM FIRE became the 3rd largest wildfire in California history after burning at least 246,350 acres (997km², or 385mi²), including about 7 percent of Yosemite’s backcountry.

Federal funding, while they last, is being made available to state and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the Rim Fire in Tuolumne County.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.

Additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further damage assessments, said FEMA.
