(CBS DETROIT) - More help is on the way tonight for those affected by the June floods.

Mayor Mike Duggan joined FEMA on Wednesday, Aug. 4., to show individuals affected by the storm on June 25 and 26 the step-by-step process of how to apply for flood relief.

In the presentation, they explained that a denial letter does not necessarily mean that person is not eligible for assistance from FEMA.
