ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Monday is the last day for victims of spring storms and flooding to apply for federal help.

So far, the government has approved more than 5.5-million dollars in disaster aid for South Georgians.

Four million helped pay for temporary housing, home repairs, and other needs through state grants. 1.5-million has been distributed through S.B.A loans.

Emergency management officials say the help was a godsend for many people especially in this economy.

"Most people in our area, I think it was under five percent had flood insurance. So your basic home owners insurance is not going to cover this. So this has been instrumental in helping people get back on their feet," said Tift EMA Director, Scott Bowers.

Anyone who still needs to apply can call 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). You can also apply click here to apply. Storm victims have until 10 o'clock tonight to apply online or by phone.
