President Donald Trump has approved a disaster declaration for California, paving the way for federal aid to reach the impacted regions as wildfires in the state have continued to wreak havoc.
Trump acknowledged that a ‘major disaster’ exists in the state after the wildfires started developing on August 14. With the approval of the US President, federal funding will be available to the affected individuals in the counties of Lake, Napa, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, and Yolo.
As per the White House official release, the assistance can also include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other such programmes that would help individuals as well as business owners to recover from the effects of the unprecedented environmental disaster.
