Additional counties Bredesen requested are expected to receive declaration in coming days.
FEMA officials said by Thursday afternoon about 8,500 people in Tennessee had registered with the federal organization to receive flood assistance.
Significant federal resources will now be available to those affected by this crisis. U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper has appointed two members of his staff to focus specifically on disaster assistance requests.
The first thing that affected residents should do is
call 1-800-621-FEMA or visit fema.gov.
“That will get the process going with the registration. From there, inspectors will be calling them to make an appointment to go see their damage and to make a determination based on that,” said Gracia Szczech of FEMA.
