LITTLE ROCK, AR - State officials are reminding victims of last month's flooding that deadline is May 24 for applying for financial help to repair property damage.

The emergency loans are available to people with uninsured losses.

The Department of Emergency Management says only thirty people had applied for aid as of yesterday.  Officials say they suspect there are more people who could use the help.

Eligible counties in Region 8 include: Baxter, Independence, Izard, Jackson, Randolph, Stone and Woodruff. 

For more information, residents can call toll-free 1-877-828-3362 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, until May 24.
