OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Gov. Brad Henry has asked President Barack Obama for public assistance for 17 Oklahoma counties affected by severe storms, tornadoes and flooding between April 25 and May 16.

Henry made the request Thursday.

If approved, the designation would allow federal funding for cities, towns and counties with infrastructure repairs and costs associated with the storms. State emergency management officials say the storms caused an estimated $5.2 million in damages in the 17 counties.

The counties included are Alfalfa, Cherokee, Choctaw, Craig, Dewey, Garfield, Garvin, Grant, Jefferson, Love, Major, Mayes, Nowata, Rogers, Tillman, Wagoner and Woods.

More counties can be added to the request as additional information becomes available.
