MONTGOMERY—Governor Bentley on Wednesday announced some Alabama residents will have an opportunity to make their homes safer from severe weather. As a result of the federal disaster declaration for Hurricane Isaac in 2012, hazard mitigation funds are now available for the following eight Alabama counties: Baldwin, Covington, Dallas, Geneva, Mobile, Monroe, Perry and Pickens.
“Alabama is no stranger to the effects of a natural disaster,” Governor Robert Bentley said. “We’ve learned that preparedness is the key to surviving the effects of a storm. These funds will allow our residents to be better prepared for the next time a devastating storm hits Alabama.”
