Governor Seeks Disaster Designation for 7 Counties

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Gov. Bill Haslam has asked President Barack Obama to declare seven counties federal disaster areas as a result of severe weather June 18-25.
The counties are Anderson, Claiborne, Grainger, Henderson, Knox, Loudon and Marion.
A presidential declaration would make the counties eligible for various federal assistance programs.
Haslam said in his request Tuesday the weather included “historic floods and unprecedented storms.”
