Governor Nathan Deal announced Monday that 10 additional counties will receive Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funds authorized by the White House for the severe weather that swept much of South Georgia on January 21 and 22.


Tattnall County is among the counties set to receive public assistance.
