This month, they are replacing the September Food Stamp benefits to 42-thousand homes in the 12 counties that were hardest hit by the storm.

Local officials say the benefits have added up to about eight million dollars. The replacement benefits should be available in the following counties: Baldwin, Butler, Coffee, Conecuh, Covington, Crenshaw, Escambia, Geneva, Mobile, Monroe and Washington.
