Alabama’s 7th District Congresswoman Terri Sewell hosted two disaster relief roundtable discussions in Eutaw and Akron.

Local elected officials from Hale, Greene, and Sumter counties as well as residents were given an update on recent developments regarding disaster relief and recovery efforts.

“The best way I can represent the people of this district is to be among the people of this district” said Rep. Sewell.

Sewell led the Alabama Congressional Delegation in writing a letter to President Joe Biden requesting an increase in the federal cost share for FEMA, which was granted.

Anyone who still wants to apply for FEMA relief can call 1-800-621-3362 or visit
