Gov. Walker asks SBA to help Outagamie Co. storm victims

Governor Scott Walker is asking the Small Business Administration (SBA) to help storm damage victims in Outagamie County.

The damage to homes and businesses from the August 7 storm system didn’t qualify for a Federal Emergency Management disaster declaration.

“This declaration would allow individuals and businesses affected by the storms to apply for low-interest loans,” Governor Walker said. “This option helps the recovery by allowing people to begin much-needed repairs.”

The National Weather Service confirmed six tornadoes moved through the Fox Valley, causing more than $30 million in damage in Outagamie County alone.
