SEATTLE -- President Barack Obama has ordered federal aid to help state and local efforts recover from a severe storm in July that pounded parts of northeast Washington state.
Obama on Tuesday signed a Washington disaster declaration. Federal money is available to state and eligible local governments for emergency work and to repair or replace facilities in Ferry and Okanogan counties and the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation.
The July 20 storm brought severe winds, thunder, flooding and hail to the region. It knocked out trees and power lines, damaged roads and left many without shelter.
