Staff Report

As we first reported last week, President Obama approved a request for federal aid for Texas, but not everyone made the list.

45 counties in Texas were granted the declaration but two counties that suffered significant damage from the wildfires didn't make the cut.

Midland and Jeff Davis Counties didn't make the list of counties.

It's not clear why these Counties haven't been granted federal assistance.

However the Governor did say he'll make sure all affected areas will receive support.
