MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) - The Federal Emergency Management Agency is reviewing costs and damages incurred by local governments and some nonprofits following massive flooding in the Detroit area last month.

State police say their Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division, FEMA and local officials are working on the effort this week. Four teams will be looking at costs for debris removal, emergency protective measures, damage and other factors.

Last week, six teams visited affected people in neighborhoods. The teams reviewed the extent, severity and impact of the disaster on individuals, homes and businesses. The assessment will determine help what kind of assistance could come following the Aug. 11 storm.
