$1 Million in Storm Aid Headed to Navajo Chapters

Navajo Times, Jason Begay Posted: Feb 11, 2010

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz.--Navajo government leaders agreed to allocate $1 million to help with emergencies related to the winter storms that buried parts of the reservation in snow, but a separate attempt to secure even more money failed this week, according to the Navajo Times.

The five-day storm in late January left snowdrifts in some areas of the reservation as high as 4 feet.

Now, as the snow melts, delegates say conditions can only get worse as mud and flooding makes unpaved roads even more treacherous. There is little debate over the need for emergency funds, but with the tribe cash-strapped in the face of the global recession, officials are cautious.
