MISSOURI--- Thursday the President ordered federal aid for state and local recovery efforts in areas affected by severe storms, straight line winds, tornadoes, and flooding from May 29th to June 10th of this year. Barton County is one of those 27 counties listed. Federal funding is available to state and local governments as well as some private non-profit organizations on a cost share basis. That money would go toward emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the severe weather.
