NICHOLAS COUNTY, Ky. (FOX 56/WKTY) – The mayor of Carlisle says FEMA denied the state’s request for federal aid.

He said the governor’s office contacted him about it Tuesday morning. Governor Beshear asked for federal assistance after floodwaters hit the town.

One woman died in the floods, and about 100 homes were damaged.

The flooding also shut down the town’s only gas station, which is still closed.

The mayor said the governor is doing a letter of appeal.
