The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be in Harrison County next week participating in an outreach program, according to the City of Marshall Deputy Emergency Management Coordinator.
The agency's representatives will be there to assist people who need federal individual assistance as a result of damage to their homes caused by flooding or tornado. The specific time frame of the flooding and tornado damage must have been between May 4, 2015, and June 19, 2015, officials with the agency say.
