ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: This is a notice of the Presidential declaration of a major 
disaster for the State of Mississippi (FEMA-1009-DR), dated February 
18, 1994, and related determinations.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 18, 1994.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Pauline C. Campbell, Response and

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that, in a letter 
dated February 18, 1994, the President declared a major disaster under 
the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency 
Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq.), as follows:

    I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the State 
of Mississippi, resulting from a severe winter storm, freezing rain, 
and sleet on February 9, 1994, and continuing is of sufficient 
severity and magnitude to warrant a major disaster declaration under 
the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act 
(``the Stafford Act''). I, therefore, declare that such a major 
disaster exists in the State of Mississippi.
    In order to provide Federal assistance, you are hereby 
authorized to allocate from funds available for these purposes, such 
amounts as you find necessary for Federal disaster assistance and 
administrative expenses.
    You are authorized to provide Public Assistance in the 
designated areas. Individual Assistance may be added at a later 
date, if warranted. Consistent with the requirement that Federal 
assistance be supplemental, any Federal funds provided under the 
Stafford Act for Public Assistance will be limited to 75 percent of 
the total eligible costs.

    The time period prescribed for the implementation of section 
310(a), Priority to Certain Applications for Public Facility and Public 
Housing Assistance, 42 U.S.C. 5153, shall be for a period not to exceed 
six months after the date of this declaration.
    Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the authority vested in the 
Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency under Executive 
Order 12148, I hereby appoint J. Roland Sarabia of the Federal 
Emergency Management Agency to act as the Federal Coordinating Officer 
for this declared disaster.
    I do hereby determine the following areas of the State of 
Mississippi to have been affected adversely by this declared major 

    Bolivar, Coahoma, Leflore, Sunflower, Tallahatchie, Washington, 
and Yalobusha Counties for Public Assistance.
