Disaster loans available for February flood victims

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)- But there are some other East Tennessee residents still dealing with heavy flooding from less than a month ago.

Governor Haslam announced yesterday that the US Small Business Administration has granted the state's request to declare parts of Knox County a disaster.

Those hit hard by the rising waters are now eligible for low interest loans.

Anderson, Blount, Grainger, Jefferson, Loudon, and Roane counties also qualify.

Those interested can go to sba.gov, or call the SBA's Disaster Assistance Customer Service Center at 800-659-2955.
