The registration deadline to apply for federal aid for Oklahomans affected by flooding and severe storms in May and June has been extended two weeks to mid-August.

Oklahomans now have until Aug. 14 to register for aid with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and for low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration.

The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management requested the extension to allow survivors more time to get in their applications.

Designated counties for homeowners and renters include: Alfalfa, Canadian, Cherokee, Craig, Creek, Delaware, Garfield, Kay, Kingfisher, Le Flore, Logan, Mayes, Muskogee, Noble, Nowata, Ottawa, Okmulgee, Osage, Pawnee, Payne, Pottawatomie, Rogers, Sequoyah, Tulsa, Wagoner, Washington and Woods.

To apply for disaster assistance, individuals and business owners may call 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or go online at www.disasterassistance.gov.
