(UNDATED) - For a second time, the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency has turned down Indiana's appeal for federal disaster assistance.

The state was seeking funds for six counties--Boone, Daviess, Fountain, Grant, Howard and Tippecanoe counties. The counties were affected by severe storms and tornadoes that ripped through Indiana in November.

Indiana first filed for federal assistance for Howard County on December 4. FEMA denied that request.

The state is investigating the possibility of seeking low-interest loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration that could provide some help to the storm-tossed counties.
