Derecho Help

Help is coming to four West Virginia counties affected by the summer's derecho. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved individual assistance after originally denying the request. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin appealed, asking for individual assistance for Kanawha, Nicholas, Raleigh and Fayette counties. FEMA announced Wednesday it had approved individual assistance for those counties. Forty two percent of the homes destroyed by the derecho in West Virginia were in those four counties.
