Three southern New Jersey counties that saw major flooding in storms from Aug. 13 to 15 - before Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee hit - are eligible to receive federal disaster aid.

President Barack Obama on Thursday approved the disaster aid for Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties.

The money will allow for emergency work and the repair or replacement of disaster-damaged facilities.

All counties in New Jersey can also qualify for flood prevention measures.
