Biden pledges aid for storm areas

September 26, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Vice President Joe Biden pledged that the federal government would help Georgia recover from the severe weather that swept through the Southeast, even as rain was forecast for the weekend.

Biden toured the metro Atlanta area by helicopter and saw portions of the city still under water from the deluge this week. At least 11 deaths in Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee were blamed on the storms.

The vice president visited residents staying at a Red Cross shelter in Cobb County.

Gov. Sonny Perdue announced that the number of counties eligible for federal aid had increased to 14.
