Livingston and Ontario counties are among 11 New York counties approved for federal support following heavy rains and flooding in May, officials announced Tuesday.

Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Delaware, Herkimer, Lewis, Otsego, Steuben and Yates counties also received disaster declarations after storms on May 12-13 and May 15-16 caused more than $28.2 million in damages, assessments by state agencies and the Federal Emergency Management Agency found.

The approvals allow state, eligible local governments and certain non-profit organizations to apply for federal funding for emergency work and repairs to facilities damaged by the storms.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state disaster emergency on May 14. Local states of emergency were declared in Yates County, the village of Penn Yan and the town of Jerusalem in the Finger Lakes region.
