Gov. Haley requests Horry Co. be declared disaster area

Posted: Updated:

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is asking the US Small Business Administration to declare Horry County a disaster area following the Carolina Forest fire.

Governor Haley sent a letter requesting the implementation of the SBA Disaster Loan Program.

Haley's letter says she will not seek help from FEMA because the fire did not meet its assistance thresholds.

On her walk around the complex Monday, the Governor said it was a miracle no one died, and thanked first responders.
