FEMA Reimburses Millions

As the result of the January 2009 winter storm which killed 36 people, the Federal Emergency Management Agency says it has paid $201 million in reimbursements to public agencies around Kentucky. Reimbursements, in the form of FEMA Public Assistance grants, went to state, district, county and local government agencies, as well as some nonprofit organizations for their ice storm-related costs. The storm knocked out water and electric service to nearly a million homes and covered Kentucky with more than 19 million cubic yards of debris from broken trees and tree limbs.
