Small Texas City Getting Storm Shelter Aid

FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Grant Program provides grants to states and tribal and local governments to implement long-term hazard mitigation measures that reduce the loss of life and property from natural disasters.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced it has awarded $2.3 million to the state of Texas for the construction of a community safe room in the city of Victoria, Texas, a small city about 30 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. It has occasionally suffered hurricane damage.

FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Grant Program will pay 75 percent, or $2,325,000, of the $3.1 million cost of the safe room, a stand-alone, 20,000-square-foot structure that "will provide protection from hurricanes, tropical storms and tornadoes for the residents of Victoria County and is accessible for people with disabilities," according to FEMA's news release. It said the safe room will be built on the campus of St. Joseph High School.
