BAXTER SPRINGS, Kan. (AP) - Gov. Sam Brownback is seeking federal help for an area that flooded last month in southeast Kansas.

Brownback’s office said in a news release Thursday that the governor signed a disaster declaration request that was submitted to the Small Business Administration. The request seeks helps for residents affected by last month’s flooding in Cherokee County. The flooding forced hundreds from their homes and closed several roads.

The Small Business Administration provides low-interest disaster loans to businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners and renters.
