White House Asking For More Funding For Federal Disaster Aid

The White House is asking Congress for more than $5 billion in extra disaster funds.

That doesn't include the billions needed to help the East Coast clean up from Hurricane Irene.
The new money would be used for disasters earlier this year including flooding and tornadoes.

FEMA has only $800 million left in its current fund.
