FEMA won't fund re-building in West

Posted: Updated:
WEST (KCEN) -

FEMA is refusing to provide money to help rebuild West, though it has provided funds to individuals affected by the fertilizer plant explosion.

Sources say FEMA reviewed the state's request for a major disaster declaration following the disaster, and the money that would come with it, and decided the area was not badly affected enough to warrant it.

West Mayor Tommy Musk said at least $57 million in damage will need to be taken care of. That includes $40 million to rebuild a school.
