HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Emergency Management Agency says the federal government will reimburse Maryland state and local governments $25.4 million to cover most of their costs related to a January snowstorm.

Spokesman Ed McDonough said in an email Thursday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has paid about $4 million to date.
The payments follow a presidential disaster declaration in March for the storm Jan. 22-23 that buried the state in up to 38.5 inches of snow.
The declaration covers the state government, 18 counties and the city of Baltimore. It enables them to recover 75 percent of their costs for emergency work and repairs.
Gov. Larry Hogan estimated those costs at $34.2 million in his request for assistance.
Major disasters also were declared in Pennsylvania, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
