SUMMARY : Declared disaster areas for recent
tornadoes in Arkansas, and flooding in Illinois,
Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and West
Virginia

Dear Guaranty Agency Director:

Earlier this month, we notified you that President
Clinton had declared 13 counties in Arkansas to be
disaster areas because of tornadoes that struck that
state on March 1. Many other counties in six other
states also have been declared disaster areas
because of severe flooding caused by heavy rains
that generally began in those areas on or about
February 28. Since the date of our latest
notification (March 10), additional counties in
Kentucky and Tennessee, as well as parts of
Illinois, have been declared to be disaster areas.
The following list of counties reflects the
information we have obtained from the Federal
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as of the

Kentucky, and Tennessee since our last notice to
