FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Gov. Steve Beshear says the Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved aid for seven more Kentucky counties affected by severe storms and tornadoes.
The announcement on Tuesday brings the total number of Kentucky counties eligible for aid to 14. The additional counties to get approved are Ballard, Johnson, Kenton, LaRue, Pendleton, Trimble, and Wolfe.
The federal aid will reimburse county and local governments as they repair public infrastructure and remove debris from deadly storms that moved through the state on Feb. 29 and March 2.
