Some financial help is on the way for victims of this month's floods in East Tennessee.
Governor Bill Haslam announced a U.S. Small Business Administration Disaster Declaration for several counties after severe storms and flooding damaged homes and businesses on August 5.
The declaration includes hard-hit Washington County as well as Greene and Hawkins counties.
It makes homeowners and businesses affected by the disaster eligible for low-interest loans.
The SBA will open a temporary office on Tuesday, August 21 at the Washington County Courthouse to help those affected.
