OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt says six more counties in the state have been approved for disaster assistance by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Stitt announced Thursday that individuals and business owners affected by severe storms since May 7 in Alfalfa, Craig, Garfield, Kingfisher, Pawnee, and Woods counties are eligible for federal help.

The assistance includes housing repairs or temporary housing, U.S. Small Business Administration low-interest loans to repair or replace damaged property, unemployment assistance, and grants for needs and disaster expenses not met by other programs.
