MADISON, Miss. (WDAM) – The Federal Emergency Management Agency will have specialists in home improvement and hardware stores in or near the communities affected by the June tornadoes and severe storms.

Hazard Mitigation Community Education and Outreach specialists from FEMA will offer tips about repairing, rebuilding and improving their homes so they can hold up better against severe weather. FEMA said they can also offer tips on topics like cleaning and sanitizing after storm damage, do-it-yourself repairs and working with general contractors.
