BATON ROUGE - Individuals who suffered flooding damage in St. James and West Baton Rouge parishes in the August floods are now eligible for federal disaster assistance.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency made the announcement Thursday, adding them to a list of 20 other south Louisiana parishes that have been declared federal disaster areas.
