Denied Assistance

The Federal Government has denied disaster assistance for a tornado-damaged county in Arkansas.

The agency says the state and local governments are able to handle the needs and did not need federal help.

However FEMA does plan to supply trailers for some of those left homeless from the February 24th storms.

Governor Mike Beebe says he's working with other agencies for assistance and is also looking into whether he will appeal FEMA's decision.

150-homes were damaged in the storms and 27-people were injured.
