Federal officials assess damage left from storm

Federal officials plan to tour more damage in flood ravaged eastern Kentucky on Monday.

FEMA will tour damage in Pike and Floyd counties today. FEMA officials toured Breathitt, Lee Owsley, Perry and Leslie counties last week.

Flood waters ruined hundreds of homes and businesses throughout the area earlier this month.

Fourteen counties were declared disaster areas throughout the state. The governor has written a letter to President Obama, asking for federal aid for those affected by the floods and tornado.
