    More than 94 million and climbing... that's how much the ALS Association has collected from its viral ice bucket challenge. That number changes daily. The ice bucket challenge is not for everyone and some disagree *where* you should donate your money.

CLANTON, AL - A total of 18 Alabama counties are now eligible for public assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency following last month’s severe weather.

The new eligibility means state and local governments and some nonprofit organizations in the areas affected can now apply for federal assistance under FEMA’s Public Assistance program.

The 18 counties include Baldwin, Blount, Butler, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Dekalb, Etowah, Franklin, Geneva, Jefferson, Lamar, Lee, Limestone, Mobile, Perry, Pickens and Tuscaloosa.

Some counties are eligible for aid to help cover the cost of debris removal, while others can receive help for more permanent recovery work to repair roads, bridges and public buildings.
