SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that, in a letter

the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency 
Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq.), as follows:

    I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the State 
of California, resulting from an earthquake and aftershocks on 
January 17, 1994, and continuing, is of sufficient severity and 
magnitude to warrant a major disaster declaration under the Robert 
T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (``the

exists in the State of California.

authorized to allocate from funds available for these purposes, such 
amounts as you find necessary for Federal disaster assistance and 
administrative expenses.

that Federal assistance be supplemental, any Federal funds provided 
under the Stafford Act for Public Assistance will be limited to 75 
percent of the total eligible costs except for direct Federal 
assistance costs for emergency work authorized at 100 percent 
Federal funding for the first 72 hours.

    The time period prescribed for the implementation of section 
310(a), Priority to Certain Applications for Public Facility and Public 
Housing Assistance, 42 U.S.C. 5153, shall be for a period not to exceed 
six months after the date of this declaration.
    Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the authority vested in the 
Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency under Executive 
Order 12148, I hereby appoint Frank L. Kiston of the Federal Emergency
