CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -

More than $1 million in federal public assistance has been paid out in West Virginia to help state and local governments with expenses from repairs and cleanup following Superstorm Sandy.

Under a federal disaster declaration signed by President Barack Obama on Nov. 27, 18 counties became eligible for public assistance.

So far the Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved more than 35 projects submitted by local governments.

Jan. 26 is the deadline to apply for reimbursement for recovery and cleanup costs from the storm and for aid to repair or replace public buildings and infrastructure.

The storm left many areas with a massive cleanup effort. FEMA's Charleston public assistance chief Gary Brand estimates more than 1.5 million cubic yards of debris from fallen trees were scattered over the 18 counties.
