Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia is getting nearly $1.4 million in federal disaster assistance.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency says the money will reimburse state and local government for costs and damage caused by a snow storm that hammered the state last Dec. 18-20.
State Homeland Security Chief Jimmy Gianato says the money announced Wednesday will help many agencies.
Besides government agencies, some non-profits qualify for help too.
The money is available in Boone, Calhoun, Clay, Fayette, Greenbrier, Kanawha, McDowell, Mingo, Nicholas, Pendleton, Pocahontas, Raleigh, Ritchie, Roane and Wyoming counties.
