Puerto Rico gets $8.4M in FEMA funds for storm aid

Federal officials say Puerto Rico is getting more than $8.4 million to help rebuild roads and homes damaged by Tropical Storm Otto last year.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Tuesday that the majority of funds will go toward rebuilding roads in the southern mountain towns of Villalba and Yauco.
Otto unleashed widespread floods and landslides when it swiped the Caribbean region in early October.
Several municipalities in the U.S. Caribbean territory were declared federal disaster areas.
