DESOTO COUNTY — Gov. Phil Bryant says he’s asking the federal Small Business Administration to send teams to DeSoto County to assess flood damage from last week’s heavy rainfall.

If SBA makes assistance available, it would come in the form of low-interest loans.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency says today that 10 businesses, eight apartments and four homes in DeSoto County had major damage from the flooding.

The agency says 67 businesses, 58 apartments and 55 homes had minor damage.

MEMA also says seven roads in DeSoto County had major damage from the rainfall, and three bridges and one public building had minor damage.
