    Loudoun to receive FEMA aide for hurricane damage

    President Barack Obama approved Gov. Bob McDonnell’s request for federal disaster assistance in the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s destruction in Virginia, and Loudoun County will see a share of the funds.

    The request asked for federal financial aide for localities’ expenses cleaning up damage from the storm.

    In addition to Loudoun, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance Program was approved for the following counties: Accomack, Arlington, Clarke, Craig Culpeper, Essex, Fauquier, Frederick, Greene, Highland, King and Queen, Lancaster, Madison, Mathews, Middlesex, Nelson, Northampton, Northumberland, Prince William, Rappahannock, Shenandoah, Surry, Warren and Westmoreland. The cities of Fairfax, Falls Church and Manassas also receive aide from FEMA.

    FEMA’s Public Assistance Program makes funding available to reimburse state and local governments for costs associated with response and recovery efforts, such as debris removal and related emergency services, as well as the repair or replacement of disaster-damaged facilities.

    “I thank President Obama for his prompt decision to grant federal disaster assistance for local and state governments. This action will go a long way toward reimbursing local governments for their costs,” Gov. McDonnell said in a prepared statement.
