Two West Virginia counties are getting federal assistance to help with recovery and repair efforts following the mid-June storms that resulted in flooding, landslides and mudslides.
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said Friday that public assistance funding will be available for Mason and Roane counties under the federal disaster declaration.
The declaration provides assistance for emergency work and the repair or replacement of public facilities.
Tomblin had requested a federal disaster declaration for six West Virginia counties on July 12th. The federal government has not approved the public assistance request for Doddridge, Gilmer, Harrison, and Lewis counties. And a request for individual assistance for Roane County residents is still under review.
