BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Federal Emergency Management Agency said it's begun reviewing flood damage to roads, bridges and other public infrastructure in North Dakota.

Teams made up of representative from FEMA, the state and local governments are doing preliminary damage assessments and compiling flood-related expenses incurred by governments.

In an April 20 letter to FEMA, the governor listed 40 North Dakota counties and three Indian reservations that have been affected by spring flooding.

FEMA can pay up to 75 percent of eligible repair costs in areas covered by a presidential disaster declaration.
