SUMMIT COUNTY, OH (WOIO) –
On May 16, Summit County Executive Russ Pry declared a state of emergency in response to the May 12 storm that caused widespread flooding and damage in a number of Summit County communities. The declaration allowed the Summit County Emergency Management Agency to assemble damage assessment reports to see if assistance could be received from state or federal agencies.
Last week, the Ohio Emergency Management Agency and Federal Emergency Management Agency announced that Summit County would not be receiving any individual assistance.
“It is unfortunate that we have been advised that state and federal funds will not be made available to residents who have been devastated by the flooding. However, despite not receiving disaster assistance from the state or federal level, other programs may be available to some residents,” explained Pry.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
