TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- July 14, 2012

The federal government has approved disaster unemployment assistance for victims of Tropical Storm Debby in three more Florida counties.

Disaster officials said Friday that financial help is now available to those damaged by last month's storm in Hillsborough, Manatee and Taylor counties. The unemployment assistance for a period of a maximum of 28 weeks has also been made available earlier to more than a dozen other counties, mostly stretching across the northern parts of Florida.

President Barack Obama declared a major disaster area for the state of Florida on July 3 as a result of the damage caused by Tropical Storm Debby that swept across the state in late June. Eight deaths were attributed to the storm, in addition to the flooding and wind damage in some parts of Florida.
