Obama OKs federal aid for West Virginia; at least 24 deadOffering his condolences, President Barack Obama approved federal aid for the West Virginia communities devastated by floods that have killed at least 24 people and rendered many more homeless. Obama's signature Saturday on the federal disaster declaration lets residents in three counties get aid for temporary housing and home repairs, receive low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and qualify for other assistance for individuals and business owners. Schultz said Obama is committed to ensuring that Tomblin has the federal resources he needs for all recovery efforts. The president has directed White House staff to coordinate closely with Tomblin's team to make sure the Federal Emergency Management Agency, known as FEMA, is providing all appropriate assistance. More than 24,000 homes and businesses remained without power Saturday evening.
