Officials Confident in FEMA Aid

Federal Emergency Management Agency officials Monday toured the homes in southern Kenton County devastated by the severe storm on Friday that produced the EF3 tornado. Storm victims might get federal aid within a week if President Barack Obama declares a federal emergency, officials said. Gov. Steve Beshear has requested an expedited federal disaster declaration. FEMA will inspect damage in Grant County on Tuesday and might also inspect Pendleton County, officials said.
