SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- For the second time this year, The Federal Emergency Management Agency is coming to town.

F-E-M-A officials will arrive in Utah today to perform a preliminary assessment of damage caused by flooding in the last two months.

Depending on what the find, some Utah counties could see some financial help to repair the damage caused by flooding.

However, a F-E-M-A spokesman said the visit is only the first step toward getting federal aid, there's no guarantees. Jerry DeFelice said the purpose of the visit is really just information-gathering.

F-E-M-A employees will work closely with state and local officials over the next two weeks to evaluate sites that may qualify for aid.

F-E-M-A currently plans to evaluate sites in nine counties, including Box Elder, Cache, Iron, Sevier, Tooele, Uintah, Utah, Wasatch and Weber.
