Federal aid for three Oklahoma counties hit hard by May storms has been approved, Gov. Mary Fallin announced Wednesday.

Residents and business owners in Le Flore, Okfuskee and Okmulgee counties affected by tornadoes, flooding and straight-line winds last month are now eligible for assistance for housing repairs or temporary housing, low-interest loans for individuals and businesses to repair or replace damaged property, disaster unemployment assistance and additional grants, according to a news release.

Aid requested for Garvin, Grady, Hughes, Logan, Tulsa and Wagoner counties has not been approved. Fallin on Wednesday also requested public assistance for Atoka, Canadian, Coal, Hughes, Latimer, Nowata, Okfuskee, Okmulgee, Pittsburg, Pushmataha, and Seminole counties, as well as for expanded assistance for residents of Cleveland, Lincoln, McClain, Oklahoma and Pottawatomie counties.
