Major Disaster declared for Alabama (DR-4176)

Federal disaster has been declared  for the areas in Alabama that are affected by severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding on April 28, 2014 and continuing.

Areas worst affected by multiple disasters are  Baldwin, Jefferson, Lee, and Limestone counties.

Up to 26 inches of rain fell around the Alabama-Florida state line over a two-day period, Tuesday and Wednesday, causing “historic” flooding in Baldwin County, AL, and Escambia County, FL, said The National Weather Service in Mobile.

“Federal funding is also available to state and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for debris removal and emergency work for damage from the severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding in Baldwin, Jefferson, Lee, Limestone and Mobile counties,” said Fema.

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

Governor Robert Bentley on Monday declared a State of Emergency for all Alabama counties as a result of severe weather impacting the state.

“Some of our communities have already experienced significant damage as a result of the tornadoes that began moving through Alabama earlier today,” said Bentley on Monday.
