Two additional counties are now eligible for reimbursements to county and local governments to assist in recovery from Feb. 29 and March 2 storms and tornadoes.

This brings the total number of counties receiving some type of storm-related federal aid to 23.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved Adair and Bath counties to receive public assistance, which provides reimbursements to county and local governments to repair public infrastructure or to remove storm debris. Bath County was previously approved for individual assistance.

The counties now approved for both individual and public assistance are Bath, Grant, Johnson, Kenton, LaRue, Laurel, Lawrence, Magoffin, Martin, Menifee, Morgan, Pendleton, Trimble and Wolfe.

The counties now approved for individual assistance are Campbell, Carroll, Grayson, Montgomery, Ohio, Rowan and Russell. Adair and Ballard counties are approved for public assistance.

 Residents and business owners who sustained losses in the designated counties can apply for assistance by registering online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or 1-800-462-7585 (TTY) for the hearing and speech impaired.  The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. (local time) seven days a week until further notice. 

Deadly storms and tornadoes assaulted Kentucky on March 2, causing 23 deaths and more than 300 injuries.  The Governor deployed nearly 400 National Guard troops to assist with security, traffic control and other needs in affected counties.
