Henry Seeks Federal Flood Aid

Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry is asking for help. Henry has asked the government to provide public assistance for seven counties hit hard by recent floods and severe storms.

If it's approved, the government would provide funds to help cities, counties and rural electric cooperatives with infrastructure repairs, debris removal and costs associated with responding to the storms.

The storms caused an estimated $5.5 million in those seven counties.

Henry is also seeking a declaration for Oklahoma County to help with damages to homes and businesses.
