Governor Greg Abbott's request for low interest federal disaster loans for those affected by the devastating tornadoes that swept through Texas on the weekend of April 28th has been granted by the Small Business Administration (SBA) for seven Texas counties. Those counties include: Henderson, Hunt, Kaufman, Rains, Smith, Wood and Van Zandt.
