The State of Kansas is getting federal relief to repair damages from last December's ice storm.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced Monday it is giving $63.5 million in federal public assistance to the state.

65 counties were made eligible for the assistance last February.

The FEMA funds cover 75% of eligible costs.

The state covers 10%, and the local applicant covers the remaining 15%.

The cost of the recovery effort was more than $85 million.
