BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Nearly 26,000 people have received individual assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency after Hurricane Isaac, aid totaling $88 million. FEMA spokesman Ray Perez provided the latest figures Monday.
The tallies are likely to rise, as the federal agency continues to review applications for assistance from the storm, which made landfall Aug. 28 and caused significant flooding in southeast Louisiana. More than 187,000 people have registered for FEMA help.
Homeowners and renters have received nearly $73 million for housing assistance and $15 million for other types of aid, according to FEMA.
Perez says more than $21 million has been approved for residents of St. John the Baptist Parish, which experienced among the most extensive flooding from Isaac.
