Four disaster recovery specialists from Louisiana have been deployed to Tennessee to help with that state's recovery efforts following tornadoes and flooding that occurred in May.

The Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness says Tennessee asked for the help through a formal agreement that allows states in need to draw assistance from other states.

The two Public Assistance Specialists and two Hazard Mitigation Specialists will help with public assistance applications to the Federal Emergency Management Agency and review mitigation project proposals.

The workers will be on loan for 30 days.
