Obama signs disaster declaration for Kansas snows



     WICHITA - President Obama has formally declared a major disaster from the February snowstorms in Kansas.
 
     The official disaster designation announced Friday makes federal funding available to supplement state and local recovery efforts. It covers the period of Feb. 20-23, when back-to-back storm systems dumped record amounts of snow in parts of Kansas.
 
     The money can be used by state and local governments and some nonprofit groups on a cost-sharing basis to cover emergency measures or to replace storm-damaged buildings and equipment in 23 affected counties. Some counties qualify for assistance for longer periods during or close to the covered dates.
 
     The move also makes federal money available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
