FEMA spends $2 million to prevent future flooding in Kentucky
Federal emergency management officials announced the acquisition of 13 properties in neighboring Perry County, Kentucky to aid in the prevention of flooding.
More than $2 million will be expended to buy acreage, demolish structures, and turn those areas into green space and the state will be in charge of its upkeep.
Historic flood waters in late July killed 39 people in the Commonwealth and resulted in billions in damages that state leaders said would take decades to replace.
