President Barack Obama signed a disaster declaration for Maryland to help recovery efforts following severe storms that hit the state in late June.

The president issued the disaster declaration on Thursday, ordering federal aid to supplement state and local recovery efforts. The declaration makes federal funding available for repairs in Calvert, Charles, Kent, Montgomery and St. Mary's counties and the city of Baltimore.

The White House said federal funding also is available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
