CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved more than $10 million in individual assistance to West Virginia homeowners and renters following last month’s devastating flooding.

FEMA says more than 2,000 inspections of damaged properties have been completed, and that more than 5,200 households and businesses have registered with the agency so far.

Federal disaster assistance is available to residents of 12 counties: Clay, Fayette, Greenbrier, Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Monroe, Nicholas, Pocahontas, Roane, Summers, and Webster.

The floods killed at least 22 people in the state with one person still missing.
