FEMA staff to help Kentuckians in seeking storm-related aid

Gov. Beshear: Security At Capitol Increased For Next Several Days

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear says federal emergency officials will be in three Kentucky counties in coming days to meet with people who suffered damage from severe storms and flooding. He says the officials will be available at Individual Assistance Registration Support Centers in Breathitt, Johnson and Powell counties. Staff will be available Saturday as well as Monday and Tuesday of next week to answer questions and help with disaster assistance applications. No appointments are necessary. President Joe Biden issued a major disaster declaration. That made federal funding available for Kentucky families and communities to recover from flooding in February and March.
