Gov. John Kasich says the state provide $750,000 to assist uninsured homeowners and renters who suffered damages from flash flooding in seven southern Ohio counties on May 10 and 11.

The governor’s office said Tuesday that the State Assistance program will help with eligible real property damages, personal property damages and funeral expenses in Gallia, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton.

The office says the flooding caused one death and significant property damage.
