Virginia is getting funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to deal with the impact of the intense storm that rocked the region in late June, and Maryland and the District are hoping FEMA will reimburse some of their costs as well.
On Friday, FEMA
confirmed that Virginia, which applied for storm relief funds earlier
this month, would get the federal assistance it seeks. Maryland and the
District both applied for funds Friday.
Virginia's Department of Emergency Management and FEMA
officials will reimburse funds from a joint office in Richmond. The
June 29 storm caused $25 million in damage throughout the state.
