OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended the timeframe for eligibility for disaster assistance due to last month’s flooding and storm damage to public and private property.

Gov. Mary Fallin said Tuesday FENA extended the cutoff date for eligibility from June 4 to June 22 for both individual and public assistance to reflect damage to public and private property.

The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management made the request last week because the state was besieged by severe weather for more than two months.

In May, the state experienced more than 25 tornadoes, baseball-size hail and record-breaking rainfall, setting the stage for multiple rounds of flooding and other damaging severe weather that followed.

So far, 59 counties have been approved for public assistance and 33 have been approved for individual assistance.
