Texas has finally gotten its disaster declaration...

President Barack Obama signed the declaration yesterday which gives federal assistance to those Texas counties affected by wildfires.

And we're sure Governor Rick Perry couldn't be happier because now the Lone Star State is getting aid to supplement state and local recovery efforts, for counties hit by the wildfires between April 6th and May 3rd.

The federal coordinating officer for the affected counties says additional help may be given if they're requested by Texas and necessary depending on the overall wildfire damage.
