TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- President Barack Obama has signed a disaster declaration for 14 Kansas counties hit by severe storms last month.

The declaration signed Thursday makes federal funding available for state and some local governments and some nonprofit organizations. The funds can be used for emergency work and repairs needed after storms on April 14-15. It does not provide funding for private property owners.

The counties included in the declaration are: Edwards, Ellsworth, Harper, Hodgeman, Jewell, Kiowa, Mitchell, Osborne, Rice, Rush, Russell, Sedgwick, Stafford, and Sumner.
