Roane County may soon know whether the state and county qualify for assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help with the costs of dealing with the past two weeks’ of winter weather.

Scott Stout, the director of Roane County’s Office of Emergency Services, said he could know something soon. From ice to heavy snow and everything in between, officials have had their hands full.
