DETROIT (AP) - Officials say southeastern Michigan residents have registered to receive nearly $230 million in federal disaster relief funds and loans following August’s flooding.

The Detroit News reports (https://bit.ly/1qjEjLr ) an update on the funding was released Monday.

Those applying for Federal Emergency Management Agency assistance have until Sunday to register. Those applying for U.S. Small Business Administration assistance have until Dec. 15 to register. Disaster funds will be available beyond those dates, however.

Some areas received more than 6 inches of rain that flooded basements, streets and freeways. Damage and cleanup costs have been estimated in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
