Federal aid tops $10m to KY storm victims, FEMA closing operation in Magoffin Co.

Federal disaster responders have approved more than $10.1 million for survivors of the recent severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding occurring Feb. 29 - March 2, 2012.

“The swift and full support from our local and federal emergency response partners has helped thousands of our families begin a successful recovery from these storms and tornadoes,” said Gov. Steve Beshear. “As we move into long-term recovery efforts, we will continue to make sure our communities and families have the resources they need to rebuild their homes and their lives.”

FEMA has announced plans to close its disaster recovery center in Magoffin County. The center, at the First Baptist Church in Salyersville, will close its doors at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and reopen on Monday as a loan outreach center to continue serving the victims.
