Fema Refuses to Provied Aid to West Texas Town after Explosion.
by Fox News Insider //
FEMA is refusing to provide money to help rebuild West, Texas. The small Texas town was devastated when a deadly fertilizer plant explosion destroyed numerous homes and killed 15 people.
FEMA’s response to the request for financial assistance says that the explosion is “not of the severity and magnitude that warrants a major disaster declaration.”
In a memorial service for the first responders who died in the blast, President Obama said, “We will be there even after the cameras leave and after the attention turns elsewhere. Your country will remain ever ready to help you recover and rebuild and reclaim your community.”
Individuals who live in West, Texas have been getting money from FEMA but the mayor of the town said that $57 million is needed to fix roads, a sewage system, and a school.
