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.

    I think that the President should help the ones here in the state of ky because there are alot that need it the most that cant afford to refix the damages that nature caused and my brother is one that is in need of help with his home and everything that he and his wife and son owned. They have to start over and thats not easy. Maybe with alot of prayers and alot of hope just maybe the president will help us here in KENTUCKY.. Im praying real hard for that help...
