Good morning, Nashville. Since the flooding happened almost six weeks ago, FEMA has shelled out  more than $200 million in federal disaster assistance including $117.8 for housing assistance alone. Additionally, the US Small Business Administration has given more than $64 million in low-interest loans for flood victims and businesses that were hurt by the disaster. Officials say that 62,000 people have registered for some sort of assistance, 15,000 have utilized the recovery centers, and 8,000 have received counseling.
