Disaster Declarations: 5

Emergency Declarations: 1

The state's first major disaster declaration of the year came on March 31, opening federal funding to the state and 13 counties in response to tornadoes, severe storms, winds, and flooding that hit a month before. Three more major declarations and an emergency declaration followed after Tennesseans across the state suffered a string of damaging weather and flooding in April. The latest declaration came in July to help the state recover from similarly severe tornadoes and storms that occurred from June 18 to June 24.
