South Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency says West Virginia has received more than $26 million in relief from severe storms, flooding and landslides in May.
The agency said Monday more than $11.5 million has gone to housing assistance. Another $9.8 million has gone to repair roads, bridges and the like. FEMA says the small business administration has approved another $4.2 million in loans.
Victims had until last week to register for FEMA assistance and the agency says 4,676 people have done so.
FEMA has been providing assistance in West Virginia since Calhoun, Gilmer, Lewis, McDowell, Mercer, Mingo, Raleigh, Roane, Upshur, Wirt and Wyoming Counties were declared federal disaster areas.
