President Bush has issued a disaster declaration for Alabama that will allow federal aid for Hurricane Gustav recovery in Mobile and Baldwin counties.

In a statement Wednesday, the White House said federal funding
is available to state and eligible local governments and certain
private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for
emergency work.

It also covers the repair or replacement of facilities damaged
by Gustav.

The hurricane caused some minor flooding Sept. 1 as it moved
into Louisiana.
