Gov. Jennifer Granholm says she'll meet Wednesday with federal officials to plan for disaster aid President Bush has approved to aid recovery from June storms.

Granholm says she and Federal Emergency Management Agency officials will coordinate aid for Allegan, Barry, Eaton, Ingham, Lake, Manistee, Mason, Missaukee, Osceola, Ottawa and Wexford counties.

The Lower Peninsula counties were hit by severe weather that killed at least eight people and blacked out more than 730,000 homes and businesses June 6-13.

Granholm's office says aid can cover "repair, restoration, reconstruction, or replacement" of public facilities damaged or destroyed in the storms.
