6 more SC counties eligible for FEMA storm assistance

COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - Gov. Nikki Haley has announced that six more South Carolina counties are now eligible for help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to recover from this month's severe flooding.
    
This assistance allows state agencies, local governments and some non-profits to recoup the costs of storm response, debris removal, and damage to infrastructure.
    
Haley's office says that Lee County, along with Clarendon, Dorchester, Horry, Orangeburg and Sumter counties can now receive help in all categories in which FEMA provides public aid.
    
FEMA storm aid is also now available for individuals in 22 counties affected by the storm.
