Tennessee will see federal money for storm damage

Counties in East Tennessee will see help from the U.S. Department of Homeland's Security Federal Management Agency (FEMA). It's to supplement state and local recovery efforts for the areas hit the hardest by severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding from February 28 to March 1, 2011.

The money will go to state and local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations to help repair damage. The counties in Tennessee include Franklin, Fentress, Grainger, Hamilton, Houston, Humphreys, Jackson, Jefferson, Moore, Morgan, Pickett, Scott, and Union.

There could be more money coming soon, if the state requests it and it's warranted by damage assessments.
