Today, Congressman Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-05) relayed important information to those individuals who have been displaced by the severe storms:
“Hello, this is Congressman Hal Rogers. “I would like to take a moment to share some good news with all those impacted by the devastating floods. It’s been one week since the President issued a federal disaster declaration. In that time, over six million dollars in federal disaster assistance has been approved. Nearly all of that money has been distributed.
“I also requested help from the Tide detergent company so that families displaced would have an opportunity to do some much-needed laundry. Thanks to Tide and Proctor and Gamble, I’m pleased to announce that Tide delivered 260 cases of laundry detergent and it is being handed out at God’s Pantry locations in Floyd, Pike and Breathitt Counties.
“No doubt, many challenges lie ahead, but we will all work together to find additional help for those in need. We are making progress, and we will continue to move forward. Remember, register with FEMA even if you have received help in previous disasters. May God bless you all during the recovery process.”
