Pike County Qualifies for Disaster Aid from SBA


By Brittany Bivins

Alabama tornado victims will get some help from the federal government after two tornadoes damaged or destroyed 52 homes on Christmas Day.

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley says Pike County has received a disaster declaration from the Small Business Administration. That means tornado victims will be eligible for up to $200,000 in low-interest loans.

Pike County EMA officials say they plan to begin filing cases next Tuesday at the Troy Public Library.
