PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) - Starting today, residents in several Panhandle counties affected by flooding last month are eligible to get help from the federal government.
The Small Business Administration is accepting applications for low-interest loans for businesses, homeowners and renters. Bay, Calhoun, Jackson, Walton and Washington counties were declared disaster areas.
The flooding in those areas was brought on by heavy rains late February.
