NEW MARTINSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) – The federal government has provided $1.4 million to repair West Virginia roads that were damaged in storms last spring.

The funding is through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s public assistance grant program.

The repairs are to be made to roads in Wetzel County.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said the FEMA funding will be used to repair and clear roads damaged by severe storms, flooding, mudslides and landslides. Manchin noted West Virginia has gone through multiple weather-related disasters that affected the roads in recent years.
