Michigan U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow say the U.S. Department of Transportation is giving Michigan $750,000 in disaster aid to help pay for repairs and reconstruction of roads damaged in the severe flooding that hit the southeastern corner of the state.
Stabenow said in a statement Wednesday that the funds are "an important first step in helping southeast Michigan rebuild from last week's serious flooding."
Rain topping 6 inches in spots fell in metropolitan Detroit on Aug. 10, flooding tens of thousands of homes and shutting down much of the region's expressway system for days.
Levin says he and Stabenow "will continue working with other agencies for additional assistance to help everyone get back on track."
