TOPEKA - Kansas is getting about $33.6 million in federal public assistance to repair damage from the tornadoes and storms of May 22 through June 16.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Thursday the money will help state and local governments entities and eligible private
non-profits repair storm damage, rebuild infrastructure and help
with emergency costs, such as debris removal and overtime for
emergency workers.

It's the second disaster recovery effort FEMA has administered in Kansas this year. Fifty-four counties were eligible for federal disaster assistance under the presidential declaration.

The cost of the recovery effort exceeded $44.7 million and included more than 714 projects from 223 applicants.
