The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has approved individual assistance for people in more counties hit by recent flooding in Eastern Kentucky, Gov. Andy Beshear’s office announced Saturday.

There are now 12 counties where residents are eligible for assistance, according to the release: Breathitt, Clay, Floyd, Knott, Leslie, Letcher, Magoffin, Martin, Owsley, Perry, Pike and Whitley.

This is what you need to apply: a current phone number; your address at the time of the disaster and the address where you are now staying; your Social Security number; a general list of damage and losses; banking information if you choose direct deposit; if insured, the policy number or the agent and/or the company name.

FEMA also approved disaster unemployment assistance (DUA) for people in those counties, according to the release from Beshear’s office.

People can submit a claim for DUA benefits online through the Kentucky Career Center website or by phone at 502-875-0442.
