Texas Declared Federal Disaster Area

Major disaster declared in Texas due to severe storms and flooding

The White House has declared a major disaster exists in the State of Texas in the areas affected by severe storms and flooding during the period of October 30-31, 2013.

State officials had previously estimated the damage at less than the $35 million threshold required for federal aid, but revised their estimates for the damage to government facilities to more than $100 million in November.

The Halloween floods  killed at least five people and destroyed hundreds of homes in central Texas.

The worst affected areas include the counties of Caldwell, Hays, and Travis.

“The vast majority of damage to public facilities, such as parks and roads, was in the city of Austin and Travis County along Onion Creek, which rapidly flooded after heavy overnight rain,” said a report.

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 in a statement.
