Disaster recovery centers opened Thursday in Madison and Lawrence counties for people affected by April storms in Kentucky.

Flood waters have receded from some homes in western Kentucky’s river counties. Teams are assessing damage to determine whether some counties may be eligible for F-E-M-A individual recovery assistance. FEMA’s Nick Morici says it’s OK for people to start cleaning up before their homes have been assessed.
