But they are living with a lot of devastation and many need our help recovering from this most recent flood."

    Initial reports indicate approximately 600 homes and businesses in Catawba County are estimated to have been impacted by the most recent flooding. Of those, 30 were destroyed or had major damage.

    If the disaster request is granted, the SBA will make low-interest loans available to citizens and business owners affected by the storm in Catawba and the adjacent counties to repair or replace damaged real
