Governor Reeves requests disaster declaration ahead of Zeta
This morning, Governor Tate Reeves requested a pre-landfall disaster declaration in anticipation of Zeta.
This would authorize FEMA to provide emergency protective measures including direct federal assistance for 13 Mississippi counties including our six southern counties to save lives, protect property, and public health and safety, or to lessen the threat of catastrophe in the designated areas.
More counties could be added to this declaration based on the impacts of Zeta.
Governor Reeves has also signed a state of emergency in anticipation of the storm.
