Richland-  Richland business and home owners are still waiting to find out if the federal government will help them recover from tornado damage.  FEMA made federal money available for public assistance in Stewart County, but not individual assistance.

Richland was hard hit with more than a million dollars in damage to homes and businesses. Three businesses including Stewart Webster Printing were heavily damaged. The State's Economic Development agency will meet with business owners to make sure they have the resources they need to rebuild. 

"We're working to try and see if we can get some meetings set up soon as everyone can agree on a time they'll be coming down and meeting with them either individually or collectively," said Adolph McLendon, Richland Mayor. 

Nine south Georgia counties including Stewart can get public assistance to pay for debris removal and repairs to roads, government owned buildings, and park and recreation facilities.
