The money will be used to repair or replace facilities damaged between April 6 and 21 in Douglas, Linn, Curry, Grant, Umatilla and Wheeler counties.

Gov. Kate Brown said Oregon communities faced many hardships this April.

“The impacts of these events have been devastating to the local communities," Brown said. "I applaud the incredible efforts by our local and tribal emergency managers and state agency partners who have worked tirelessly to help their fellow Oregonians during these severe weather events.”
