Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/RICK MCFARLAND --05/05/14-- Robert Steinle cq, of Sherwood, pulls a load of debris with a 4-wheeler to be unloaded aside Dam Rd. in Mayflower Monday. An F-4 tornado hit the area April 27.

Residents affected by the April 27 storms, tornadoes and floods are also eligible for low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration. The agency has approved $721,100 in loan money.

The deadline to apply for assistance is June 30. Tornado survivors can register online at disasterassistance.gov or call (800) 621-3362.
