(INDIANAPOLIS) - Governor Mitch Daniels has requested federal disaster assistance...again...this time for 15 Southern Indiana counties that were severely affected by last month's ice storms.

Jackson, Orange, Washington and Crawford Counties are included in the request, which was officially passed on to President Barack Obama.

If approved, that could mean the federal government could foot the bill for up to 75% of the cost of debris removal, emergency services related to the storm, and the repair of damaged buildings and facilities.

The other counties included in the request are Clark, Dubois, Floyd, Gibson, Harrison, Jefferson, Perry, Spencer, Switzerland, Vanderburgh, and Warrick Counties.
