Vice President Joe Biden will tour storm-ravaged parts of north Georgia today as residents in five flooded counties begin to seek federal help for cleanup and recovery.
Biden, joined by FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, will brief state and local leaders on federal assistance, AJC reporter Aaron Gould Sheinin writes.
His visit comes a day after President Barack Obama declared a major disaster in Carroll, Cherokee, Cobb, Douglas and Paulding counties.
