Following recent storms, President Barack Obama issued a disaster declaration for several counties in each state on Friday. Homeowners, renters and businesses could qualify for FEMA money already released. Sixteen Kentucky counties are receiving aid from FEMA including Johnson, Kenton, Laurel, Lawrence, Menifee, Morgan, Pendleton, Bath, Campbell, Carroll, Grant, Magoffin, Martin, Montgomery, Rowan and Wolfe. In Indiana the counties of Clark, Jefferson, Ripley, Scott, Warrick, and Washington are covered.
