FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Residents of five additional counties in Kentucky are now eligible for assistance as they work to clean up and rebuild following tornadoes and severe storms earlier this month.
The new counties are Grayson, LaRue, Ohio, Russell and Trimble. Gov. Steve Beshear's office says the total number of counties receiving federal aid is now 21.
People may receive grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover.
