FEMA officials asking storm victims to apply for assistance

FEMA teams continue to survey damage across the state.

Right now, seven counties are approved for individual assistance and Governor Beshear says more should be added soon.

People in the approved areas can start applying now.

You can call 1-800-621-FEMA to sign up or go to www.disasterassistance.gov.

You should have your social security number, insurance information and a description of the damage ready.

Officials say after you apply, a check could be directly deposited into your bank account within seven to 10 days.
