Nebraska to Request Assistance from the U.S. Small Business Administration for Aid in the Wake of June Storms

Governor Dave Heineman submitted a request Tuesday for disaster assistance from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to help Nebraskans in five northeast Nebraska counties who were impacted by the June 14-21 severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding.

The counties are: Cedar, Cuming, Dixon, Stanton and Wayne.

The action comes in the wake of a decision announced yesterday by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that Individual Assistance for Cedar, Cuming, Dixon, Stanton and Wayne counties did not warrant federal disaster assistance. The decision came after a thorough review of all available information, including the results of joint local, state and federal preliminary damage assessments. Level of insurance coverage is one factor that is considered, particularly because federal disaster assistance cannot duplicate insurance proceeds or assistance from other sources.

Jacie Milius of Gladstone has joined the Thayer, Nuckolls, and Clay county UNL Extension office as of June 2.

Milius comes to the office with a wide variety of experiences that will make her an assets to the 4-H community for those counties.

Milius, herself, has shown in 4-H since she was eight years old and upon graduation from Adams Central High School in Hastings, she began volunteering her skills to help better how 4-H serves its communities.

I was really interested in textiles and crafts, Milius said. But I also showed beef and sheep and had a rabbit or two that I always entered into the fair. I guess you could say I have two groups of friends, my summer friends that were all about 4-H and then my school friends.
