RALEIGH — Gov. Beverly Perdue has requested federal assistance for homeowners and businesses affected by a nor’easter that lashed the North Carolina coast.

Perdue is seeking funding for Dare County, where there was major damage. If approved, the declaration will make low-interest loans available to help eligible property owners make repairs. Also eligible will be Currituck, Hyde and Tyrrell counties.

Between Nov. 10-15, a nor’easter spawned from the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida swept through across coastal North Carolina. The most severe damage was found in Dare County, where a survey found several homes and business having sustained major damage.

An SBA disaster declaration would enable eligible citizens to apply for low interest home and personal property loans to pay for repairs and loss of inventory or other business capital.
