DENVER (AP) – The Federal Emergency Management Agency says nearly $246 million in federal aid has flowed into Colorado since the deadly September floods.

FEMA said Tuesday the aid includes $96 million in loans, $59.3 million in flood insurance settlements and $54.5 million in housing assistance.

Another $31.3 million has been designated for debris removal and related infrastructure repairs and more than $4.6 million was awarded for flood-related medical expenses, property losses and other costs.

The mid-September floods killed nine people and damaged or destroyed nearly 2,000 homes.
