Federal Help Available for Tornado Damaged Businesses


The federal government is offering loans to businesses and homes damaged or destroyed in this month’s tornadoes. While only a handful of homes were hit by the twisters, nearly 150 businesses sustained some sort of damage. They will be getting help in the form of low interest loans from the Small Business Administration. Joseph Kralicek is Deputy Director of the Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency. He says the loans are fast-tracked but since they are loans, although at low-interest, they will have to be paid back.
